Derinya has built a strong connection with the Japanese culture through a variety of ways. We play host to schools groups visiting from Musashino, Shukutoku and Frankston's Sister City - Susono. In turn, every second year, a small delegation of Derinya students visit Susono and stay with a host family to experience the culture and lifestyle first hand.
In 2015, we built a dedicated facility for our Japanese Language Program. The room and garden have been designed in Japanese-style and have become the centre for all of our student learning and communications with Japan.
