ast term, Ms Hitomi’s Year 10 Home Language Japanese students learned about the life and issues of foreigners living in Japan and how the Japanese should live with them. As this is a current hot topic discussed in Japan, Ms Hitomi emailed the students’ essays to a major Japanese newspaper. Ms Hitomi was delighted when Asahi Shimbun, one of Japan’s main newspapers, contacted her to inform her that one of her students’ work, Mana Ganesh Kawamura, had been selected to appear in print. Mana’s article was published on 26th December 2018. Well done Mana! You should be very proud of your achievement.
