Setagaya Gakuen Hosting

Each July, Glenlyon Norfolk School is pleased to welcome around 210 Grade 10 male students from our brother school in Tokyo, Setagaya Gakuen School (SGS), to Victoria, to learn English in our GNS Summer Language Program. It is one of the longest running summer language programs in Victoria.

A valuable feature of this program is our homestay experience. We look for local families to provide accommodation, breakfast and dinner, transportation to/from school (walking is fine), and daily home experiences in Canada.

Due to the current situation with COVID-19, Glenlyon Norfolk School has decided to cancel our Setagaya Gakuen program for 2020.
