Wishing all of the Global LYNC teachers and students a very Happy Christmas and a safe and wonderful New Year in 2016.
Miner’s Rest PS students engaged in telecommunications and loving it! This partnership evolved after a visit from Sinmyeong in 2015 following a visit to Sinmyeong Elementary in Korea by Principal Dale Power and teacher Megan Manson. Miner’s Rest PS has a Korean language program and recently hosted a wonderful cultural day for the school community with the assistance of Insun Chang, Victorian Korean language advisor. Years 5 & 6 spoke about what Christmas looks like in the two different countries and sang them a Paul Kelly classic “From little things, big things grow”, which has been the highlight of Miner’s Rest music topic, ‘Australian Folk’. The students from Sinmyeong had the lyrics in English and followed them as the students sang. The school aims to strengthen the partnership through the use of song to assist the Korean students to develop their English. We look forward to the ongoing communication with Sinmyeong.
