Thirty-four students and eight staff from Tokai in Japan visited Braemar College on Thursday and Friday last week.
The students were welcomed with an official assembly on Thursday morning by the mayor, and the students sung a beautiful song about moving on from the natural disaster of the tsunami several years ago. Some students attending came from this region.
Our Year 8 students are studying Japan at the moment, and the Japanese visitors organised a special session for the students based on cultural interests.
The session revolved around eight tables of activities. This was an enjoyable experience for all involved, with students playing games, listening to stories, and making paper planes.
The visitors attended a presentation by Chris Humphreys from Wild Action Zoo, and got to see and handle many unique Australian animals including snakes, crocodiles, lizards, kookaburras, koalas and many more.
