On Wednesday this week we farewelled our three Japanese exchange students from our sister Japanese school, Shonan Shirayuri Gakuen.
Maho, Rikako and Yuri have spent the past nine weeks in Australia at St Patrick's College. The girls participated in mainstream classes with the objective of improving their English skills. The students thoroughly enjoyed their time as part of our College community involving themselves in all aspects of school life from the Swimming Carnival, Open Day, College Band and Choir.
I would like to express my gratitude to the Holland, Mulhall and Quinnell families who hosted the girls. Without their generosity and hospitality this program would not exist.
We wish the girls safe travel as they return to Japan.
