Fairhills High School visit from Australia
Seiritsu had the pleasure of hosting 8 students and 2 teachers from Fairhills High School (Melbourne, Australia) for two days this month during their 3 week tour of Japan. This is the second year in the row Fairhills students have visited us. Each student was partnered with one of our Japanese students and they spent the day together in classes and during lunch.
In the afternoon, the students were able to try the Japanese tea ceremony and some Japanese calligraphy, even taking home some of presents consisting of their own artwork. In addition, they were given performances by karate club, brass band and dance club.
The students seemed to have had a really enjoyable time as even a few tears appeared when the final good-byes were shared on the last day.
We hope the students and teachers continue to have a great trip exploring Japan and we look forward to another group from Fairhills next year.
If other schools are planning to tour Japan and they would like to visit Seiritsu as well, please feel free to contact us.
We can include special events for visiting students including Japanese language lessons and manga/anime drawing workshops in addition to offering the opportunity for visiting students to make friends with local students while participating in Seiritsu school life.
