Korean City Excursion
27 June, 2018
The senior Korean class from Point Cook enjoyed an excursion into the city of Melbourne. The students met at Federation Square and from there, they had to find their way to a mystery destination by listening and following recorded directions in Korean. In groups of three, they were given different routes to the mystery destination, which happened to be the State Library. The students then visited a variety of Korean grocery shops, where they conversed with the shopkeepers in Korean, asking questions about the produce, price and availability of items, concluding with successful purchase transactions. The last stop was a Korean restaurant, where students ordered food using Korean specific vocabulary and phrases that they had practised in class. Enjoying a delicious Korean BBQ lunch was a wonderful way to end such a successful day, full of enjoyable learning activities and experiences!

Greek Excursion to Oakleigh
27 June, 2018
In a brilliant sea of blue uniformity, Greece’s beloved colour, years 7-10 students from Glen Waverley VSL were wearing T-shirts sponsored by the VSL, The Greek Bakery, and Huntingdale Butchers during a recent excursion to the Oakleigh precinct which has a lot of Greek businesses. The main purpose of this project was for students to immerse themselves in Greek culture and community where they are given a great opportunity to practice the target language, Greek, on Greek community members, and thus enhance their speaking and social skills. All students enjoyed the experience on the day, and it was an invaluable cultural and learning lesson for all involved. Denise Katiforis Greek Co-ordinator

The Cobram Punjabi students recently attended an excursion as part of their language and culture studies. The students delivered a project on Punjabi festivals (Gurpurab) and students played Punjabi games such as King, Queen, Thief and Kikli.

The class then shared cultural Punjabi food related to the festivals. The children thoroughly enjoyed their day.
