Ja­panese ter­tiary students study­ing English in Porirua have un­der­taken vol­un­tary work as part of a new scheme. The students, who have al­ready re­turned to Ja­pan, were the first in an ex­per­i­men­tal ar­range­ment be­tween Whi­tireia Polytech­nic and Oberin Univer­sity in Ja­pan. Five of them lived with lo­cal fam­i­lies, stud­ied English at Whi­tireia and par­tic­i­pated in vol­un­teer work to de­velop their lan­guage skills and to give back to the lo­cal community. Vol­un­tary po­si­tions were se­cured at Mary Pot­ter Hospice, St Vin­cent de Paul, Op­por­tu­nity for An­i­mals, The Po­lice Mu­seum and Keep Porirua Beau­ti­ful. Whi­tireia in­ter­na­tional op­er­a­tions man­ager Kiri Bishop said the students en­joyed a va­ri­ety of work and meet­ing new peo­ple through these or­gan­i­sa­tions.
