From Foundation to Year 6 students learn to communicate in Japanese and to explore Japanese culture every week.
Our school provides students with an authentic and inspiring Japanese program using a range of language activities. Students enjoy learning the language through songs, rhythm, Japanese literature, plays, hands-on cultural activities, games and using ICT. These activities are carefully prepared, based on building up their language skills, as well as stimulating their cultural awareness.
Learning language is not only fun and exciting for students, but also very beneficial. Students can improve their own literacy skills when they learn the four vital skills - listening, speaking, reading and writing in another language.
Later on this year we are planning to have a 'Japanese Day' at school. This special event is to celebrate different aspects of the Japanese culture. Our children will participate in cultural activities such as cooking, making a traditional toy and folding Origami. This will also be a great opportunity for children to perform Japanese items to our whole school community.
