Japanese Exchange Program
In 1991, Thornlie Senior High School formed a sister school relationship with Amagasaki-Inazono SHS from Osaka, Japan. This relationship was formed under the auspices of the WA and Hyogo Prefectural Governments to foster International Understanding.
Students from Amagasaki-Inazono SHS visit Thornlie SHS every July, and Thornlie students visit Inazono every two years. Over the years a strong relationship has built between the two schools and their families. There has even been a marriage between ex-students from both schools.
In recent years, Nishinomiya SHS, also from Osaka. has joined with Amagasaki-Inazono SHS in the exchange program.
