JET departure Q&A

The annual JET pre-departure Q&A was held at the consulate general of Japan last night. Our JET Alumni Association Qld president Olivier, treasurer Brett and secretary Richard were delighted to meet and greet the thirty young new JETs who will soon embark on their exciting new career.

For those soon-to-depart new JETs, thank you for coming last night. It was wonderful to meet you and it reminded us of (years ago!) when we were very "wakuwaku" to go on our own JET journey. If you know of any other new JETs who haven't joined our Facebook page yet, please remind them to do so, we would love to answer any further questions and stay in touch with you.


Annual hanami at New Farm Park

It’s Hanami time!
Please join us at our annual Hanami picnic beneath the beautiful Jacarandas at New Farm Park. As always, there will be games and lots of great company. Plus, bring along any Japan-related books you'd like to swap.
Date: Sunday, 30th October
Time: From 11.30am
Place: New Farm Park (we hope to be under the giant fig near the Rotunda or that general area). Look for the JETAA banner.
Catering: BYO food, drinks, picnic rugs, etc.
Book swap: Please bring any Japanese or Japan-related books along that you no longer need. Please ensure it’s a book you’re willing to give away and note that you may need to take your book home again if it’s not sold. No more than 5 books per person please. Books can also be purchased with a gold coin if you don’t have any to swap.
Please note that the event will be cancelled in the case of rain.
