Eight International students, led by Mrs Whitcombe and Mr Sarraf, set off in the school van to explore Auckland's North Shore. The students were:
Minkyu Ha, Yamato Inoue, Ishihar Jun, Wonsik Jeong, Chan You Kim, Dong Hyo Kim, Jiarui Lui and Zhendao Shi.
Our first stop was Lake Pupuke in Takapuna. This is a freshwater lake occupying a volcanic crater. We identified various birds as we explored the lakefront.More
Yamoto Inoue arrived in the second term knowing hardly any English from Japan. He therefore attends ESOL instead of the mainstream English classes, and uses each day's form class to read.
Recently Yamoto presented an excellent speech about Japan and his family to the class. The class were spellbound because they realised how difficult it was for him. They then asked him questions which he answered willingly. When he didn't understand the question the boys simplified the question so he was able to answer. A great example of fitting in!
Twenty Japanese boys from Tokyo High School are currently studying at Rosmini College. They will be in Auckland for three weeks. They are all staying with students from the school and are really enjoying their experience.
We hope they visit us again soon.
