LOTE  (Japanese) Program

In the LOTE program (Languages other than English) throughout of the year students participate in a range of activites to develop both an understanding of the Japanese language and cultural awareness. Students engage in activities such as:



* Learning how to write Hiragana alphabet.





* Making Oni masks for the  Japanese Setsubun festival.








* Playing game to practice how to recognise Japanese Kanji numbers.




* Researching and working to create their PowerPoint presentation about Japanese cities.


* Making Origami Hina dolls for Japanese Hina doll festival (Girls' festival).




Sister school program: Tenmacho Elementary School


A feature of the Japanese LOTE program is the reciprocal educational exchange program with our sister school, Tenma-Cho Elementary School situated in Shizuoka Japan.
A group of students and staff from Kings Park visit them in Japan every second year and the other years we host Tenmacho school group visiting KPPS. Unfortunately our school visit trips have been postponing since 2020 due to Covid-19, but we have been maintaining our relationship with Tenmacho E.S. using other medium through online communications and posting mails.
