International Study Tours

Japan Study Tour

The Japan Study Tour takes place every two years and has been running for the last 15 25 years. The trip incorporates homestay experiences with both Frankston’s sister city, Susono and Frankston High School’s sister school, Kawaguchi Kita High School. It also provides an opportunity to participate in extensive sightseeing around Kyoto, Osaka and Hiroshima and visits to Mt Fujiama and Tokyo Disneyland.

Our sister school visits us every other year. Students who participate in the trip have the opportunity to host the student who hosted them in Japan. Taking part in this program is a life changing experience for the students involved.

France Study Tour

The Frankston High School French Trip is a three week educational tour of Northern France for students in Years 9-12. The tour starts in Paris, with students immersing themselves in the culture and history of the capital, before embarking on a bus tour through Brittany and Normandy.

The visit concludes with a week’s stay in Orléans hosted by our sister school, Lycée Jean Zay, where students have the opportunity to extend their stay as an exchange student. Orléan is located in the beautiful Loire Valley, an area known for its magnificent Cháteaux and stunning scenery.

It is steeped in history from the battles of Joan of Arc to the reign of Napolean. In addition to enhancing and consolidating their French language studies, students learn in detail about the art, architecture and history of France.
