The English department held a family BBQ on July 28th as a way to better get to know our students families and to create stronger bonds. The BBQ could not have been held without the strong support of Yamata Yochien executive members and the kind support of the Japanese staff under Nishiyama sensei guidance. Mr Kanzawa was kind enough to run the BBQ's for us and the food was delicious. We all enjoyed chatting and eating together followed by breaking watermelons which were so refreshing on such a lovely summers day. The students enjoyed throwing water balloons and Steven and Alex. Thank you to Tanizawa sensei for giving the opening and closing speach and Principle Kurihara for her hard work catering and organising the food so that we could all enjoy the day.
