About Us

About VS Oceania

Since our establishment, we have helped many young students from Japan and Australia to experience life in a foreign culture. The VS Oceania Management Team are passionate about developing inter-cultural communication between everyday people of different cultures and it is from this passion that we draw our strength and core principles.

From our origins as a small operation, we have grown into a strong and stable company, with each program tailored to the specific needs of each of the study-tour groups we co-ordinate. It is our hope that every student who participates in our cultural exchange programme goes away with a memorable experience of the Australian way of life and a greater understanding and appreciation of cultures outside Japan.

Richard Trehy

Hi, my name is Richard.  I have been teaching and instructing young people since 1982 in all aspects of life. I am a volunteer at a very large Youth Recreation Centre near my home. I have organised and coached at sports, i.e. Basketball, Soccer, Tennis, Table Tennis etc. I have also worked closely with our local primary school helping students that were behind in their reading to improve their reading ability and teaching older students how to properly address a congregation/meeting.

More recently I have been teaching Japanese Students to improve their spoken English. I like to see my Japanese Students enjoy their lessons which I always try to mix with some fun and games. I am not a serious person but I do take the responsibility of helping my students to improve their spoken English very seriously. I am very conscious of the different cultures between Japan and Australia so I try to put my student at ease as soon as they arrive. I also instruct our new E.S.L. Teachers. I really enjoy myself and I always look forward to my next assignment which I hope might be YOU!
