All in the family

Year 4 German students' writing efforts were rewarded with some special visitors.

“This term, Year 4 German students have been learning about natural and historical sights of NSW and Sydney,” said their teacher, Frau Jutta Bussche.

“They shared their knowledge and used their persuasive writing skills and sent postcards to Germany, helping me to convince my parents to travel to NSW.

“Their efforts were rewarded by postcards from Germany and culminated in welcoming Helmut and Elke in class.

“The students eagerly shared the ‘tourist brochures’ they created in class and happily joined in some German board games brought along by our visitors.

“It was a fantastic end to a great term of German immersion!”
