Point Cook P-9 College (partners of Yong gi Elementary) have a wet land at their school, and are working on a program looking at migratory birds which fly to Korea! We think this is such a fabulous idea, and we can’t wait to see what happens next!
From Aram Lee: “Linton Primary School and DongGung Primary School had their first link up yesterday. We introduced ourselves to each other (my students used some sentences in Korean. So proud of them!), they also sang us a song called ‘you’re born to be loved’ in Korean and English. It was really good and we all had good time together.”
The Lakes South Morang recently had their first meeting with their new Korean partner school, Hak Jeong Elementary. We’re looking forward to seeing some more great connections between these two!

Thank you to So Jin Kim and his family for their kind donation of Korean national costume to Linton Primary School. We are very pleased to be associated with Daegu Region and look forward to working together.
Below is a picture of [one of our] Grade 5 [students], wearing the costume. Our students can greet each other in Korean, count to 10 and tell about what they like and dislike. We are very happy for the opportunity to promote Korean language and culture in our community.”
Huge thanks to the wonderful EunSook, who is assisting with class linkups and translations, and sound and video testing. She is such a great help in making everything run smoothly!
