Kingscliff students back from Japan

STUDENTS at Kingscliff High School will have a lot to look forward to in the LOTE (Languages Other Than English) Department when they return from Easter holidays.

The school welcomed new Japanese teacher Darlene Knowles to the staff as well as the return of three students and one new addition from Japan.

Holly Robbards, Jessica LeStrange and Keelie Amidy, who spent three months at Kingscliff's sister school Yamanashi Galcuin, returned from Japan to the open arms of family and friends recently.

While studying abroad they got to experience a white Christmas and the chance to submerge themselves in another culture.

Saki Takagi from Yamanashi Galcuin, will join Kingscliff High students for 11 months.

Principal Alan Tolley welcomed Saki to the school.

“Just as Saki would know from learning a language, learning about other cultures opens the door to a bigger world,” Mr Tolley said.

“We are so lucky at KHS to have these great opportunities.”
