Chiyoda High School,Tokyo, Japan - Short Course

Over the last two weeks we have had a short course at NPGHS with some wonderful students from Chiyoda High School in Tokyo, Japan. The students came with their teacher Mrs. Mukasa and later were joined by four more students and another teacher, Mr. Iijima for two days. We thank them for coming to our school and we hope they enjoyed their time with us. Our visitors had a powhiri, learned about pois and weaving, studied ESOL for three days and gave a wonderful presentation. Then they were joined by 'buddies' from NPGHS where they attended classes. During the weekends they went for a farm visit, to our wonderful Pukekura park and are off to Rotorua today. Finally, they go home to Japan on Wednesday. We thank them for the opportunity for us to learn more about Japan. We really enjoyed your friendship and getting to know you. Best wishes for the future. Please view the photos to see what everyone got up to.
