Language learning with our Preps

This term the Preps have begun learning Japanese with Nickeas Sensei. They have been very keen learners, singing our Greetings song with ‘Kenny the Koala’ and introducing themselves to a partner – e.g. “Konnichi wa. Watashi wa Tom desu.” (Hello. My name is Tom)

Sensei has enjoyed speaking to them individually in Japanese too.

Mt Martha Primary School students are fortunate again to have the opportunity to learn languages with the collaboration of Dromana Secondary College.  Our Year 6 students have enjoyed learning Japanese with Harder Sensei and Indonesian with Pak Matulis via video-link every fortnight.  As well as being exposed to the language and culture of Japan and Indonesia, our Dromana College teachers have reinforced the opportunities for our students who continue learning languages into Secondary College and beyond.
