From Australia_St. Andrew’s_ターム留学レポート②_2016
Now we are more than happy to get you to know a new report on our study abroad program from Australia. This report is from Shiho Ogata, a 10th grader student of Otsuma Nakano Senior High School. She is now joining St. Andrew’s Catholic School in Cairns Australia as an exchange student joinging 11th year for the term 1 of 2016. The following is her report;
Hello, there! I’m Shiho Ogata. To my great surprise, two weeks have already passed since I came to Australia. The temperature here is very high in the daytime, but at night the cool air makes us feel good.
As the days I spend here go by, I am gradually getting used to the western society, where everything is in English. I have also found a lot of difference between Australia and Japan.
I take Religion class at St. Andrew’s, which is my most favorite class here. I have learned about Christian ideas because this school is a Catholic college. We are also learning Buddhist ideas and rituals. I have found Religion class interesting and fun!
Last weekend, I went to Tinaroo Dam and went jet-skiing with my host family and their relatives. I had a lot of fun because this was my first experience of jet-skiing. It was awesome!
I am looking forward to the next week coming because our Swimming Carnival will be held on Thursday! I want to enjoy my school life and homestay here in Australia as much as possible, which will make me improve my English skills and understanding of Australian life and culture.
