OBU Students Visit

Japanese teacher Hiroki Kurihara reports on a middle school visit from Obu City.

Following the senior school visit from our Japanese sister school in early August, we welcomed a group of middle school students from Obu City, Japan in late August. This annual visit is inspired by the sister cities relationship between the City of Port Phillip and the City of Obu. The Obu students explored Elwood College with the assistance of our Year 8 Japanese students, using both Japanese and English. It was great to see students from different language backgrounds work together and make friends instantly, thanks to the languages they learn.
