About 80 primary and secondary students aged eight to 17, packed the Fiji Museum deck on Wednesday during the last day of the Korean Culture and Language Programme.

Raymond Rusivakula, 16, of Marist Brothers High School said he has learned a great deal about Korea especially in regards to the language, culture, and their attire.

“One thing I enjoyed the most was the handicraft activities that we did today and it’s my first time here as well,” the Year 12 student said.

Representative of the Embassy of the Republic of Korea, Jeong-Yeol Kwak said the programme was all about promoting the Korean culture and what Korea was all about to the students.

“We need to promote understanding of the Korean culture and the response from the students to learn in the past three days has been very positive,” he said.

Mr Kwak said students had shown such great enthusiasm during group activities. There were also prizes given away during quiz sessions yesterday.

Four officials from the Korean embassy and five Korean student volunteers facilitated the sessions which included traditional handicraft, games, and culture. Certificates were also given to students at the end of the session.

The programme has been running for the fifth year now.
