Otemon Gakuin Elementary School Visit

​Last week, we hosted the 24th annual study tour by Otemon Gakuin Elementary School, our Sister School from Osaka.  The visit by 35 students and 7 teachers was a highly successful event and again the bond between our families, students and teachers continued to grow stronger.  During the 5 days, the Japanese students experienced a range of activities such as boomerang painting, traditional Aboriginal games, creative dance, cooking and a day trip to Lone Pine on Mirimar Cruises.  Thank you to all the host parents and their children for the kindness, hospitality and generosity shown to the Otemon students.

In October, a meeting will be held for parents interested in sending their children in Years 5 and 6 on the Japan Study Tour in September of 2017.  Next year promises to be a highlight in the relationship between Holland Park and Otemon Gakuin with the celebration of 25 years of friendship.
