JAPANESE VISITORS

Osaki Kaisei Senior High School is situated on a small island in the Seto Naikai Inland Sea in Hiroshima Prefecture.  The island is about twice the size of Kapiti Island, very rural and is known for its citrus fruit and ship building industry.  There are less than 70 students at the school.

This year three students and a teacher are visiting WHS, participating in a range of classes including English as a Second Language, Japanese, Outdoor Education and Maori Tikanga. They are also going to visit places such as Te Papa and Weta Workshop.

In order to get the most out of the experience they will be staying with students from Wellington High School.

Osaki Kaisei Senior High School Newsletter shows their report after Wellington High School students recently visited them in Japan.

DR NIKKI TURNER ON CHILD POVERTY

Week 6 saw the library being the venue for another lunchtime guest speaker.  The Year 12 Geography and Year 13 Crime and Society classes joined forces to invite Dr Nikki Turner to talk about Child Poverty in Aotearoa NZ.

As usual, WHS students supported the event in large numbers and made it another successful event.
