Superintendent has first hand experience with Global LYNCs Daegu Pilot Program.

Mr Woo Tong-Ki, superindendent of the Daegu Metropolitan Office of Education took part in a linkup between Saeron Elementary School and Chelsea Primary School on September 15th, with students at both ends dressing up in their finest hanboks.

The students taught each other traditional dances and songs, including a performance of Waltzing Matilda. Lots of preparation was put in by teachers to showcase their passionate classes. The students then broke off for a quick rehearsal on mute before giving their final performances, which gave a nice insight into the parallels between cultures as the students prepared informally in groups.
