LOTE  (Japanese) Program

In the LOTE program (Languages other than English) throughout of the year students participate in a range of activites to develop both an understanding of the Japanese language and cultural awareness. Students engage in activities such as:



* Learning how to write Hiragana alphabet.

 



* Making Oni masks for the  Japanese Setsubun festival.


 


* Playing game to practice how to recognise Japanese Kanji numbers.




 

* Researching and working to create their PowerPoint presentation about Japanese cities.


* Making Origami Hina dolls for Japanese Hina doll festival (Girls' festival).





 

 

A feature of the Japanese LOTE program is the reciprocal educational exchange program with our sister school, Tenma-Cho Elementary School situated in Shizuoka Japan.
We hosted 10 students from Tenma-cho Elementary School in August 2016. And this year from 24th October to 2nd November, a group of students and staff from Kings Park will visit them in Japan.
