2017 marked 10 years of friendship with Takigawa Junior High School (located in Kobe, Japan). Takigawa High School first visited Northcross back in 2008 and the relationship between our two schools has grown stronger every year. A true sense of friendship now exists between schools. All 102 visiting students were hosted by Northcross families who opened up their homes to our visitors. The feedback from Northcross students, their parents and caregivers, Northcross staff & the students and staff from Takigawa Junior High School was absolutely amazing. We would like to say a very big thank you to our Host Families who showed the true spirit of Kiwi Hospitality. Thank you. The school have already indicated their return dates for 2018!
