Taiko Drumming - Year 6

Year 6 students combined language and music recently when they learnt to play the traditional Japanese taiko drum with Kiyomi Sensei from EZ Japanese. All students quickly learnt the skills required to play basic rhythms and practised projecting their voices for a strong and loud ‘kiai’. After progressing through increasingly difficult patterns, all worked well together to create a loud, powerful and energetic finale performance.

Ritsumeikan University Visitors

3D and MA recently enjoyed a visit from 12 students from Ritsumeikan University in Kyoto, Japan. The students, currently studying an intensive course at USQ for their Master of Education, participated and assisted in Japanese lessons, talking and playing a variety of games with the two classes. Our students enjoyed practising their Japanese self-introductions and showing the visitors their Japanese reading and speaking skills.
