Jamieson Primary School students touring in Japan
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.
