Sasebo Cultural Trip.
We had 5 students who visited BDC last week from our sister school – Seiwa Girls school, Sasebo Japan. The visit is part of the biannual Sasebo and Coffs City Council relations. It is a wonderful program that strengthens our international ties with Japan. You can visit the school’s website here http://www.seiwa.ac.jp/ (It is in Japanese).
The Japanese students were hosted by 5 families from BDC and they enjoyed joining into the Australian school life and even learnt how to surf and visited out iconic “Big Banana”.
Carla. S – yr 8, Jackson G & Airlie C in yr 9, Lauren W in yr 10 and Manuli N in Yr 11 will will be travelling to Sasebo in December this year to experience the Japanese way of life as part of the program offered between the 2 City Councils.
