On Thursday 14th June, Year 10 Japanese students embarked on a fun-filled adventure to the Gold Coast. On arrival at Surfers Paradise, students were positioned between the JTB Office and the Gold Coast Information Centre, ready to snag the unsuspecting Japanese tourist for their Japanese marketing surveys.
After an hour and a half of interviews, we all returned to the bus which promptly took us to Donto Sapporo, an authentic Japanese restaurant at Broadbeach. At the restaurant we took off our shoes, sat on the floor and were treated to a traditional Japanese meal which consisted of sushi, karaage, salad, miso soup and delicious sukiyaki (cooked by us at our tables) followed by macha ice-cream. After a scrumptious long lunch, we then boarded the bus and returned home.
During our visit to the Gold Coast, students practised their speaking skills, learnt about Japanese culture and met some very kind Japanese tourists. The entire group found the excursion very enjoyable and a valuable opportunity to hone their Japanese skills.
I would like to commend the students on their impeccable behaviour and a special thank you to Mrs Carson, for her support and professionalism.
