HSP: Farewell Japanese Study Tour

As the week came to a close we were blessed to be a part of the farewell bbq for the Japanese students. A last get-together before the headed back to Japan, we all had a ball … and many of the Japanese students got a taste of an Aussie sausage sizzle for the first time! We’ll take a look at the fun that was had that afternoon, but before I do, let me introduce our newest HSPers who will be staying with us for only a short time before heading back to their countries.

OUR NEW HSPers

The Newbies

We have two lovely girls all the way from Japan – Natsumi and Rinka, and the lovely Stella, from South Korea!

Welcome Newbie

You know the two blokes (boys) on the ends, Leo from Thailand and Hui from China, but let me introduce the lovely Tim, from China. He will be with us only for a short time before he goes back to China.

We hope you all feel welcome here on the Sunshine Coast and have a wonderful time at Lexis!

FAREWELL JAPANESE STUDY TOUR

As well fired up the barbie (well, pushed the button), Leilani graciously gave her time to cook up some sizzling snags (I would’ve helped, but I had a camera in my hands … sorry Leilani)!! Delicious!

And as you can see the students quite literally devoured them!

It was liked they’d never tasted a sausage before!! Anyway, they had a great time and again, our students had a wonderful time mingling with them for one last time …

… I think their teacher may have been a model once upon a time!! What do you think?

Farewell BBQ: A group Photo (with whoever was left)

And like in typical Japanese tradition, it was group photo time (well, that may have been my idea)!!

We wish them all the very best as they head back to Japan and settle back into school and life. We hope you had a safe trip and we would love to hear from you (or better yet – see you) again. But most of all, we hope you had a great experience in Australia, and we hope you never forget it!

See ya later mate!
