On April 12, the Consul-General, the Hon Sue Ellery MLC, Minister for Education and Training, the Hon Donna Faragher MLC, shadow Minister for Education, and convenors of The Parliamentary Friends of Japan, Ms Sabine Winton MLA and Mr Kyran O’Donnell MLA, joined to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Japanese School in Perth and its relocation to City Beach Primary School.
 
Touching on the long-standing friendly relations between Japan and WA, Consul-General Hirayama spoke of his expectations that the relocation of the Japanese School in Perth would deepen exchange between the students of City Beach Primary School and the Japanese School. Minister Ellery spoke about the relationship the Western Australian Government has with Japan, specifically in educational exchange, and expressed her desire to visit Japan with this in mind. The Japanese School’s Principal, Mr Yoshizaki, and City Beach Primary School’s Principal, Mrs Jenkins, both vowed to create opportunities for the students from both schools to interact in the fantastic surroundings of the school grounds.
 
It was a memorable day for the 200 people who attended, as they shared a Japanese meal of sushi rolls and udon noodles, while being treated to an udon-making demonstration.
