Miner’s Rest PS begins telecommunications

 

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 Miners rest linkassistance 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.  Miner’s Rest Primary movie
