Japanese News

We were recently very privileged to have a university student from Japan, Ayame Mimura, visit our school for four days during Weeks 5 & 6. Leeming Primary School students participated in many different Japanese language and cultural activities, including calligraphy (rooms 1, 3, & 11), making onigiri riceballs (rooms 9 & 12), origami, and asking Ayame many questions about her life in Japan. Ayame had a wonderful time at our school.

Leeming Primary School extends its thanks to the family of Sara Gerard for their assistance in arranging Ayame’s visit

We received thanks from Annie Mayes (Japanese teacher from Leeming Senior High School) for Leeming Primary School’s continuing support of Leeming SHS Japanese Exchange program by hosting the visiting students at Leeming Primary earlier in the term. She also sent through a photo she took on the day.

Japanese speaking members of the Leeming community may be interested to test their language ability in the 2018  Japanese-Language Proficiency Test (JLPT), which is being held at Perth Modern School on Sunday, December 2. Registrations close September 6.  For more details go to  http://jpf.org.au/language/for-learners/jlpt/.

The Japanese room will be open on Open Night! Come have a look at our students’ classwork! See examples of Japanese calligraphy! Try out some Japanese activities and games! See you there! Mata aimasho!
