Excursion week/楽しい思い出 遠足・修学旅行

It was quiet on campus last Friday as students from Years 1-6 of the International Division and the Japanese Division, enjoyed their term day excursion/s, whilst the Japanese High School Division students were away on their overnight excursion.
先週の金曜日はキンディ以外の全校児童・生徒が遠足に行きました。また中学部の生徒は修学旅行でポートスティーブンスに行きました。

Year 1 & 2 excursion to Elizabeth Farm / Year 1・Year 2はエリザベスファームに

In spite of the weather Year One and Year Two had a wonderful excursion to Elizabeth Farm. We got to experience what life for the MacArthur children and their family was like in Australia 200 years ago.
お天気が心配でしたが、Year 1・Year 2はエリザベス・ファームで楽しい遠足の日を過ごしました。オーストラリアの200年前のマッカーサー家が暮らしていたような生活を体験してきました。

A lot of the food they ate was grown on their property and because they had no fridges it was stored in the cool cellar under the kitchen. We got to sit around the kitchen table and identify some of the items they used for cooking. Washing clothes was done by hand using a washing board and soap; very tiring work. We got to wash some clothes, which required a lot of muscle power, and hung them up on the washing line to dry.
食事は全部ファームで育てられたもので作られていました。冷蔵庫がないためキッチンの下に食べ物を貯蔵していました。洗濯は洗濯板を使い、手でこすって洗う、そして手で絞って干す、という力を一杯使うとてもたいへんな作業でした。

We also used a quill to write our names. We dipped the nib into an ink pot and had to work carefully so the ink did not smudge. The outdoor games involved playing with skittles, rolling wooden hula hoops, throwing rings on sticks and catching balls in cups.
自分たちの名前を書く時は羽ペンを使いました。ペン先をインクに付けてにじまないように丁寧にしなければいけません。外では、スキットル、木製のフラフープを使った遊びやボールをカップでキャッチする遊びをしました。

It was an informative and educational experience. Everyone enjoyed the day.
いろいろなことを体験できた、楽しい1日でした。

Years 3 & 4 Excursion to the Chinese gardens / Year 3・Year 4はチャイニーズ・ガーデンへ

Year Three and Four are studying Australia’s neighbours. During the term they will learn about Australia’s Pacific neighbours and Asian Neighbours. With this in mind 53 excited children headed for China town on Friday to learn about the Chinese culture. The poor weather did not deter the children from walking through China Town learning about the food, culture, symbols and famous Chinese people who had immigrated to Australia. They then walked to the Chinese Garden of Friendship. This was a garden built with the cooperation of the Chinese city of Guangzhou. It is a beautiful tranquil garden and a place where many people come to sit in harmony with nature in the middle of a city. The students then cooled off by playing in the local park and finished the day by sketching their favourite view of the city.
Year3・Year4は今学期アジア太平洋近隣諸国の勉強をしています。53人の児童たちは中国の文化を勉強するためにチャイニーズ・ガーデンを訪れました。チャイナタウンを歩いて通りながら、食べ物、文化やシンボル、そしてオーストラリアに移民した有名な中国人について勉強しました。チャイニーズガーデンは広州市と共同で造られた、街中と融合したとても静かで美しい庭です。

It was a great time to visit China Town as the Chinese prepare to welcome the Chinese New Year, the Year of the Pig. If you were born in these years 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007, 2019 this is your year. People born in the ‘Year of The Pig’ are said to have a beautiful personality and are blessed with good fortune in life.
今年は猪の年です。猪生まれの人は美しい人格と人生に幸運がついている、と言われています。

Years 5 & 6 Surf Education / Year 5・Year 6はサーフ・エデュケーション

Another wonderful day of sun, surf and smiles at South Steyne and Shelley Beach for the Stage 3 students of SJIS. The students practised their surf survival skills, learning the steps to follow if they found themselves in difficulty in the water. They also competed in teams in surf relays, running, wading and dolphin diving in the waves. It was wonderful to see their confidence in the water and them challenging them-selves. The highlight of the day is always riding the surf boards. Today they were able to use a rip as an express escalator to get out beyond the waves, paddle parallel to the beach and then catch the waves back in to shore.
Year5・Year 6の生徒たちは、素晴らしい日差しの下、シェリービーチでサーフィンを楽しみました。サーフサバイバルスキルや海で溺れそうになった時にどうしたらいいのかを学びました。サーフリレー、ランニングや波の中へドルフィンダイビングなどをチームで競いました。この日のハイライトはサーフボードに乗ることです。寄せてくる波の合間を縫い、パドルしながら岸まで無事に戻ってこれました。

High School Overnight Excursion / 中学部の生徒は修学旅行へ

For two nights Japanese High School students went on a homestay to Port Stephens, a small coastal town 200km north of Sydney, to experience the Australian outdoors. Students participated in many activities they have never previously experienced in Japan, such as horse riding, sandboarding and the famous Port Stephens dolphin cruise. The main event of the excursion was the homestay to understand and to discuss ‘Australian culture and customs’. Their host family welcomed their questions about Australians and the Australian way of life. It was a great opportunity for the students to utilise their English language skills and learn more about Australian culture. The students said they will treasure this valuable time they spent with their friends.

1月30日から2月1日にかけて、HSの宿泊体験学習が行われました。行き先はシドニーから200km北のポートスティーブンス。乗馬やドルフィンクルーズ、サンドボードなど日本では中々できないアクティビティ体験はもちろん、今年の目玉は何と言っても2日間のホームステイ。その中で与えられたミッションは、家族と日豪の文化や習慣に関わるテーマに基づいて話し合うこと。調べるだけではわからないオーストラリア人の本音を英語でインタビューしてきました。これまでの学校生活で培った英語力やコミュニケーション能力など、総合的な能力が試される良い機会となりました。仲間と共に過ごした3日間は、シドニーでしか味わえない「最高の思い出」となったようです。
