The group arrived shortly after 10am and were met by Mr Scrimshaw, Mr Sheppard and ten of our Korean Club students. They all then attended a lively presentation and Q&A led by Mr Sheppard with the aid of a translator. Following this and some refreshments the students who were made up of boys and girls from Year 7 to 13 showed the guests around the school , different classes and met with the Principal. An opportunity for photographs at the end in the hall and outside the main reception brought the visit to a close and all who were present found the experience very rewarding and moving. Finally in recognition of their time with us we were presented with gifts from Korea which will be presented to the students in Korean Club this week.
Further to this, Rosanjali Alesrarosario in Year 10 has successfully applied and been rewarded with a 10 day scholarship to Seoul in July as a result of her excellent service to the Korean Club for the past 2 years. I am sure that this will be a once in lifetime opportunity that she can tell us about when she returns in Year 11.
