Year ...student...loved the  Japanese play performance

Year 1 student Caitlyn E loved the Japanese play 

Learning languages is fun, as Junior School students discovered this week during a special Middle School Japanese performance.

Year 6 students presented a play in Japanese to an appreciative audience of Pakenham Campus Junior School students. And while the younger students may not have understood all the words, they certainly picked up on the story.

“It really showed the language is all about communication,” said Middle School Japanese teacher Kellie Ogawa. “Quite often kids and parents think language is boring and this was to show them that it is not!”

Ms Ogawa wrote the play, called Momotaro (The Peach Boy), basing it on traditional Japanese folklore. She said students worked hard since the end of last term and had rehearsed it to perfection.

“They performed it so well and were really excited. I was so proud of them,” she said.
