Jamieson Pri­mary School stu­dents tour­ing in Japan

Mansfield Courier - - NEWS -

SEVEN stu­dents from the Jamieson Pri­mary School flew out from Aus­tralia last week and are cur­rently in the mid­dle of a two week tour of Japan.

Join­ing stu­dents from Dar­nam Pri­mary School, the group flew out from Mel­bourne Satur­day week ago, and will re­turn home this week­end.

“The over­seas ex­po­sure to a to­tally dif­fer­ent cul­ture will have an im­mense im­pact on the stu­dents,” Jamieson Pri­mary School prin­ci­pal, Genevieve Bol­well, ex­plained be­fore the group de­parted.

“We will also spend time teach­ing them some tra­di­tional Aus­tralian ac­tiv­i­ties – bush danc­ing and boomerang paint­ing.”

The Jamieson Pri­mary School has had a long re­la­tion­ship with Japan, host­ing ex­change teach­ers for al­most 10 years.

It is also the sec­ond time the Jamieson Pri­mary School has en­joyed an in­ter­na­tional ex­cur­sion, three grade six stu­dents trav­el­ling to Japan back in 2008.

OVER­SEAS: Seven stu­dents from the Jamieson Pri­mary School are cur­rently in Japan on an ex­tended two week ex­cur­sion, pic­tured at a Ja­panese mu­seum.
