Last Friday, seven of our Year 10 Japanese students visited the Mackay City Library to lead the Cultural Story Time session with a reading of the Australian children’s classic, “Wombat Stew” – in Japanese (followed by an English translation).  The audience consisted of toddlers and parents, including some families for whom Japanese is their native tongue.

The students had been rehearsing in their own time for several weeks and they did an absolutely amazing job – with several Japanese audience members coming up to congratulate them.  Please congratulate:  Anja Arbeithuber; Bayden Barrett; Jessica Curd; Kate Herring; Bailee King; Neve Munro and Stephanie Purnell on their commitment and enthusiasm!
