Our Year 3’s from Room 12, 13 and 14 were lucky enough to have high school students from Kaho High School in Fukuoka Prefecture Japan visit them on Monday 22 October. The students are visiting Perth as part of a 3 day cultural exchange.
To introduce themselves to our Year 3 group, Kaho students sang the Japanese National Anthem as well as their school song, which sounded very different to the Woodlands School song! Our students invited their visitors back to their classrooms, where they partnered up and made some colourful origami together. Our Year 3 students are currently studying Japanese, and it was a perfect opportunity for both groups of students to practise their Japanese and English speaking! By welcoming the students, it was also a perfect opportunity for Woodlands PS students to demonstrate and practise the school values of respect, belonging and humanity.
As well as visiting Woodlands PS, Kaho students are also visiting Curtin University, the University of WA as well as Rottnest. We wish them all the best for the rest of their stay in Perth. Thank you to Mr Courtney Jones for organising the visit.
