Farewell to Shione!
Shione Fukumoto our Japanese Language Assistant has sadly left us. She was contracted to work Term 1 to 3. Shione didn’t want a formal farewell or fuss, so quietly departed for New Zealand where she will be making her new home.
This was typical of Shione; no fuss, but doing an absolutely brilliant job. Shione helped our junior classes, engendering an enthusiasm and confidence for learning Japanese. She also assisted some senior students with their challenges learning Japanese through VSL. She also helped our Japanese staff develop their language skills; something I personally am very grateful for.
We wish Shione good luck in the future, and no doubt some lucky people in New Zealand will experience the professionalism and enthusiasm she has for language learning.
