On Wednesday August 14th. 15 students; 13 girls and 2 boys, 3 teachers and a Tour Escort arrived at school at 3.30pm. Once they had met their host families, it was home for a well earned rest and their first home-cooked Aussie meal.
Thursday at school saw some some fun activities between the Year 7 classes and the Ainan-cho students. Of course we taught them ‘Home Among the Gum Trees’ and the actions as well as some other well known Aussie songs.
The International Orienteering Challenge was a tight competition. Teams consisted of 2 Ainan-cho students and 3 Year 7 students. 3 teams were standouts and will receive prizes. The top score was 9 1/2 out of 14. Here are some of the question cards. It was a fun and challenging activity to undertake with our Japanese visitors.
The students at school love having our Japanese visitors and we look forward to 3 more fun days at school.
Here is one of the Aussie songs that we shared with our Japanese friends. It shows so much about Australia in 4 minutes.
