Day 14- Sayonara Assembly

Saturday 1 October

School on a Saturday! Students visited their classmates one last time and then attended a heart warming farewell and presentation.

A formal assembly saw all the Minokamo students gather in the grand hall to witness the presentation of certificates to all our students. Our two schools reconfirmed theFriendship Agreement for another five years.

After the formalities hosts and next year’s visiting students joined together for a party. Genesis students taught Minokamo students a bush dance, which ended in one giant dance circle! Fun was had by all as goodbyes were exchanged.

The rest of the weekend is free with their host families. They know their leaders are only a phone call away.
