And they're back!  Parents met students and staff at Melbourne Airport this morning with big grins and warm hugs.  Students were very happy to see their families after what has been a whirlwind adventure of incredible Korean culture and tourism.  A monumental amount of work went into the trip, and it isn't without the dedication, commitment and acumen of Chriss Tracey and her team of equally dedicated and experienced teachers Michael Villani, Ellie Parsons and Jaimi Paten that students were afforded such a spectacular opportunity.
