Ian’s class at Gilmore College for Girls and their partner school in Daegu meeting for the first time through Zoom, plus a ‘Hello’ from the principal of Gilmore!
Students at YongGi Elementary School in Daegu were very excited to link up with their friends at Eltham East Primary School. Some of the students in Daegu were wearing traditional Korean HanBok and DoBok.
Students used 10 different languages used to say hello to their overseas friends, as the school is very multicultural, with students from a huge range of backgrounds. – students began the lesson by greeting each other in various langauges:
Maori, Vietnamese, Indian,
Then they said G’day!
Bugye Middle School Daegu and Benalla Secondary College are planning their lessons for a Secondary level partnership that will begin next term – we can’t wait to see what they do!
Discussions with Federation University recently have led to their involvement in the project in a number is ways including the development of curriculum units suitable for use in Global LYNCs by Education students at the University. This is a wonderful opportunity for applied learning prior to the completion of teacher training. We look forward to providing you with updates.
August 24th and September 23rd.
