The group participated in the introduction and intermediate Japanese lessons by teacher Natasha Nesbit over the course of the day.

But it wasn’t all language skills, with the children also learning about the art of origami, Japanese calligraphy and games.

The QVMAG’s science and history education officer Tammy Edmunds said the Japanese lessons kicked off the second week of holiday activities for children aged six to 15.

Today will see children get into science and tomorrow they will try their hand at theatre sports before taking on the mini-Olympics and competing in such events as marshmallow weightlifting.

Bookings are required to take part and some fees apply. For more information contact the QVMAG on 6323 3798.
