    JULY 2016

    Each year, 6 children are selected by the Australia Japan Society of Victoria (AJSV) to attend the Asian Pacific Children’s Convention (APCC) in Fukuoka, Japan.  A chaperone is required to assist the AJSV Liaison officer with the briefing and preparations for the visit as well as attending the convention. The chaperone will be responsible for the care of the children, both while travelling and in Japan (approx. two weeks), assisted by a Peace Ambassador.  Whilst in Japan, the chaperone will fully participate in the APCC program including homestay with a Japanese family, school visit, camp and other events/activities organised by the APCC/host families. There is no opportunity for independent travel or sightseeing during the convention. Meals, accommodation and transport whilst in Japan are provided.

    Final dates of this year’s convention will not be known until late May however, it will be from approximately 10 July to 24 July (approx.) and does not fully coincide with Australian school holidays. It should be noted that this is a voluntary position and it is anticipated that the selected person will have experience with children, particularly those in upper primary school.

    Airfares and travel insurance will be covered by AJSV but AJSV membership, spending money, passports etc are the responsibility of the selected person. A Working with Children’s check will be required prior to the trip. Japanese language will be an advantage but is not essential but interest in Japan is essential!

Applications should include relevant experience with upper Primary School aged children, details of past travel including Japan as well as any other relevant qualifications.

    You are invited to attend Bridge Club Australia's trivia night for Nepal. 

    As participants of the APCC we are global citizens. Whilst in Japan, we all made friendships with people from across the world and It is our responsibility to help one another in times of need. 

    In light of the recent natural disaster in Nepal, Bridge Club Australia is running a trivia night to raise funds for victims affected by the 7.9 magnitude earthquake. Many of our dear friends in Nepal are among the 5.6 million people still lacking basic necessities such as water, shelter and medical care. 

    Please come to the fund raising trivia night. 


    When: 5th July 6pm

    Where: Cooinda Guide Hall, Rostrevor Parade, Mount Albert North

    RSVP: before the 1st of July

     

    Bring along your friends and family, food and drinks (tea and coffee will be provided) and plenty of gold coins.

    We ask that you donate a gold coin on entry and bring a wrapped gift to the value of $10, to be added to our mystery prize table. 

    There will be a silent auction, plenty of prizes and lots of fun to be had by all. 

     

    We are calling on you, to help our dear friends in Nepal, and why not do so while having fun with old and new friends. 

    Of course if you are unable to attend, we encourage you to donate directly at the following link:

    www.gofundme.com/brinda 

    This fund was set up by a fellow APCC participant from Nepal, Brinda Shrestha, who is now living in Australia. These funds will go directly to the ground work and support of her community which were severely effected by the earthquake.

    We look forward to seeing you there,

    Sophie McCracken-Evans

    (BCA president)
