eBuddies: Skype with Class 5LE

Our Class takes part in an eBuddies program where we share our learning with a few other classes around the world. Today we had our second Skype session with Class 5LE from Campsie Public School in Sydney.

As it was our first Skype session with Class 5LE. During our Skype session  we asked a few questions to help us to get to know them better. Some interesting things we learnt about their school include:

  • They are a bilingual school which means for one hour a day their lesson is taught in Korean
  • They have 750 students nearly double the amount of students at our school.
  • The students in Class 5LE are doing Genius Hour
  • They have a school band and dance group
  • They start school at 8:45am and finish at 3pm.

We are looking forward to continuing to share and learn more with Class 5LE and the other classes involved in eBuddies.
