Our 7/8 class proudly showed off our fantastic agriculture facilities to an enthusiastic group of Japanese students and staff on Thursday afternoon. 

The MAS students worked together with the Japanese visitors to complete a literacy activity aimed at improving their English/Japanese translations of common agricultural words. 

They then enjoyed a tour of the Ag Block. Each visiting student had the opportunity to hold a lamb, visit the pig shed, feed our calves and walk the goats. 

In addition, Olivia and Krystal from Year 10 provided tractor rides for a few lucky Japanese students. 

Overall it was a very successful, busy and enjoyable afternoon. Congratulations to all the MAS students for being such great tour guides. 

We received many positive comments from the Japanese staff and students about the 'wonderful experience' which was so very different from anything they had seen in Japan.
