We visited DongGung Elementary School in Busan (partners of Linton Primary School), and met the principal Mr HeeJong Kang, along with English teacher MinWoo Park and other staff. We were lucky to be shown around the school, and learnt that DongGung ES specialises in technology with a robotics program and using 3D printing in learning. We were also very excited to learn that Principal HeeJong Kang has been involved in Video Conferencing for a long time, and shared a passion for it with Jo.
While we were at DongGung we also taught a class (to an assembly of students) about school life in Australia, and some Australian Animals. The students loved learning about how different life in Australia is (especially that we don’t have to do academy classes after school) hearing the kookaburra laugh, and watching some kangaroos interrupt a golf tournament!
Students at DongGung were also very pleased to meet their new friend Blinky Bill, and to welcome him to their school.
