Japan plays an important role in the Asia-Pacific region and makes significant contributions to the area’s economic, political and diplomatic climate. Japan and Australia have a close relationship, trading resources in economics, education and tourism. In addition to this, the influence of Japanese culture on modern Australian society is evident in areas such as fashion, food, popular culture, technology and the arts.

Subject description

Japan’s geographical proximity to Australia makes it easy to access and facilitate communication between the two countries. In particular, Burpengary State Secondary College encourages students to interact with, and develop genuine relationships with people from Japan through video conferencing and annual visits from a sister schools (Japan trip). These relationships and the general study of Japanese foster cultural awareness, tolerance and empathy for people from other countries.

What it will help students do

The ability to interact effectively with people from other cultures, along with intercultural competence, enables students to become active and informed citizens in a global world.
