Bellarine Junior School Japanese Speech Contest

The annual Bellarine Junior School Japanese Speech Contest was held on Friday, 28th July.

This year 47 students from Year 1 to Year 4 participated and demonstrated their outstanding Japanese speaking skills. All the participants impressed the judges and audience with their high standard of Japanese and delivery.

It is not easy to deliver a speech in a foreign language in front of a large audience and we would like to congratulate the participants for their courageous efforts and achievement. We thank parents for supporting and encouraging their children, and for the time spent preparing for the contest. The award winners are as follows:
