Today was our last day to at Mueller College school. During morning tea time, we sang Edelweiss and If You're Happy. We also gave a speech about our school in Japan. Then we did a dance called Eisa, a traditional dance in the Okinawa area of Japan. Last, we did presentations about Japanese things like Shogi, Japanese History, Japanese Fairy Tales, Japanese Games, and Kimonos. After all our presentations, we had our last lunch and class with our buddies. We will miss them so much because they have all been so kind to us. Tomorrow, we will spend the whole day with our host families. We are excited to enjoy all Saturday with them!
Today was our fourth day in Australia and our second day at Mueller College school. We tried so many things again and we had a lot fun! We used iPads in the math class and we taught our teachers and classmates some Japanese phrases like こんにちは or 元気ですか？Also, we learned how to play some games from our Aussie friends. Tomorrow will be our last day at school. We will be sad, but we hope we can have fun again, too!
Today we had our first day of Australian school at Mueller College. We went to music, art, library, and math classes. Some of the activities were a little difficult, but our Australian "buddies" helped us. They are all friendly, and told as many things about school life at Mueller College. Then we had morning tea, and we enjoyed eating snacks and chatting with our friends! After lunch, we went outside and played soccer and tag. It was a very good day!
We started the 2018 Australia Program which will take place over nine days. It was about an 8 hour flight ending with us arriving at Brisbane Airport. We took our a bus and visited Mount Coot-tha to enjoy a spectacular view of the city. Then we went to a history museum and art exhibition. We got to eat lunch outside and have real Australian hamburgers! Last, we went to meet our host families. We were all tired and nervous, but they welcomed us so with kind hearts, so we are excited to continue on with our following days of adventure!
Starting tomorrow, we will go to our first day at school. We are excited to learn English and make many new friends!
