Farewell ceremony as SVP says good bye to our Japanese friends from Hippo family. Each year we have an Immersion programme to Japan in which we send our Grade 8 students to join in a homestay and snow camp with Hippo family. This year they sent a group of Japanese families to Indonesia, some of whom stayed with several SVP host families. They joined in many different activities while they were here, including tasting many Indonesia foods, practising language and learning dance and musical games.
Monday afternoon was time to say goodbye as their flights were later that night, and many old friends, including some homestay parents from our students previous trips to Japan had fun catching up and playing games and practising language. We said farewell and hope to see them again later this year, when our Grade 8s return to Japan again.
