Blake wins Iwasaki Japanese Bursary
FOR the past 13 years, students of Japanese have been eligible to apply for the Iwasaki Sangyo Japanese Travel Bursary and Achievement Award. It was established to recognise excellence in Japanese studies at a secondary level in Queensland schools.
Rockhampton State High School student Blake Dingley was the winner for the Rockhampton-Yeppoon region and received a $600 award with $300 for Blake and $300 for the school’s Japanese language program.
Some of the requirements for the application included a written submission in Japanese and a half-hour telephone interview.
