Australian Students visit Y2

St Andrew’s had some visitors from Australia who came  for an exchange with Y11 students.

On Wednesday, April 13th, three students from Jean Paul College, from Brisbane, visited us. They made a short presentation showing the Y2 kids interesting facts about their country. They taught them the most dangerous animals: Blue ringed octopus, Box Jellyfish, Sharks, Eastern Brown Snake and the Saltwater Crocodile.  They also showed them the typical food of Australia  like: Vegemites, Meat pies, Tim Tams and Lamingtons.  Moreover they presented them, the most popular places in Australia:  The Opera House in Sydney, The Harbour Bridge, and the Great Barrier Reef.

They cooked with Y2 students a snack or dessert called Lamingtons. This snack is very popular in Australia and it is a piece of sponge cake dipped in chocolate sprinkled with some coconut.

Sass Times members interviewed these three Australian girls asking them some questions about what they thought about our country.
They thought that most of our food was the same like: Barbecue sauce. They loved “milanesas”.

We think that this exchange was a great idea and it was a very rich experience. Y2 students learnt a lot of facts that they didn't know about Australia, as they are reading Letters to Felix by Annette Langen, Constanza Droop where students learn about different places around the world.

Watch the Australian students interacting with Y2.

A Visit from Australia.
