Kon-nichi-wa from Japan

Niko Nakayama in Year 5 is currently representing Australia at a 13 day Asia Pacific Congress in Japan. Around 300, 11 year old students from 60 countries are celebrating their 30th Anniversary Year. They are experiencing camping, demonstrating Australian performances, meetings, sightseeing and a home stay. Niko is enjoying  new cultural experiences every day and is building strong relationship with friends from all over the world. Niko says “My experience in Japan has been incredible. I have gained so much knowledge about Japan and the world through my friends and my host-family. I now have connections all over the world’.  

We are looking forward to her return with fond memories next week.
