Up earlish, the working group set out breakfast for others, morning prayers then out to meet over 1000 students ….
What an amazing welcome we all had! Our students did their item very well, nerves aside. Great speeches delivered by Jenny N, Caitlyn K, Kate B and Michael R , not easy to do in ones own language so much more difficult in another language. Entertained by the Taiko Drum Team and we had a special speech Rie Komori, she came an had an extended stay at Genesis in 2012.
Of special note: Breanna Hill had happy birthday sang to her by all the Minokamo students and staff!
Off to visit the new senior high school building; 5 stories and no lift for general student OR teacher use….no wonder they are so healthy!
We visited the mayor of Minokamo, a new and the countries youngest mayor at 30 years old, where we had our own paparazzi pack! Handed over a gift and we had speeches by our seniors.
An impromptu soccer match ensued between our students and the Minokamo soccer team, player of the match was Meegan Robinson!
An exciting and at times nerve wracking day, but so proud of all our students. Mrs S, Miss R, Mr K and Mr B.
