SinDang Elementary School

In Daegu, we also visited SinDang Elementary School which was very interesting – the school is in a very multicultural area, so they have a special Korean culture course to make adjusting to Korean life easier for new students. The school also connects to their students through a fantastic  traditional Korean music program – Jo even had a try at playing some traditional drums!DSC_0312 DSC_0294 DSC_0323 DSC_0322

ChoEup Elementary School

While in Busan we also visited ChoEup Elementary School, where Jo was excited to see Young, who she has worked with a lot. We met staff at the school, and discussed their participation in Global LYNCs, and then we took an English lesson with the students, in which they learnt about school and other aspects of life in Australia. Young also very kindly took us to see some beautiful cherry blossoms after our meeting at the school, which was such a treat!DSC_1512  DSC_1502 DSC_1498 DSC_1495

YeonCheon Elementary School

Visiting YeonCheon Elementary School, we met the wonderful staff and toured the school, learning about their facilities. We also lead an English class – Jo talked to the students about Bunjil (a creator-deity in local Victorian Aboriginal mythology) and the students decorated feathers in a traditional Indigenous Australian style, and Scarlett talked about the Aussie accent and some Australian English. By the end of the class, the students had all written a sentence using some true Aussie-isms, mate!
