Masae-sensei (Ms. Masae) is the Japanese teacher at Tecoma Primary School. Students from Foundation to Grade 6 participate in a 45-minute session each week. Our Japanese program encourages students to learn the language through a wide range of activities such as songs, games, speaking sessions, reading quizzes, cooking, cultural demonstrations, writing hiragana, origami, artistic expression, listening games and collaborative activities.
In 2019 a small group of Grade 5 and 6 students were lucky enough to visit our sister school in Mito, Japan. We look forward to students from Mito coming to visit us in the future too.
