Japanese Guide Visit – Monday

August 7, 2017


Happy Birthday Mahiro

The day began with a quick family celebration for Mahiro’s 15th birthday. We even managed to display some Ballarat sunshine for the occasion.

Lumen Christi Primary School

LumenChristi JapaneseGirlGuidesOur visiting Japanese Guides started the day with a quick visit to Lumen Christi Primary School where some of our host families and other local Girl Guides attend school.

They spent time participating in some Australian activities with the grade 5/6 classes. They had a tour of the school, watched an Australian story and sampled Aussie foods.

Lumen Christi students learn Japanese as a second language.

Sam, Noriko and their team prepared a lovely meal.


So many activities in such a short time frame.
