Thursday 29 September
This morning students went into various classes; Maths, English, Japanese…. even Physics!
They are doing so well, giving everything a go, so very impressed by them all!
After lunch we went to visit the mayor of Minokamo City. He is in his fourth year and at 32 years old is the youngest mayor in Japan. He told our students that he wishes for young people to care about politics enough to become involved.
The students also went to visit two local sightseeing places; one to learn about the Nakasendo (the Middle Road) and the second to learn about the local history.
Sending the students off with smiles and a little bit of excitement as Friday is a pupil free day at the sister school, I reminded them that I was just a phone call away! Not that they will be needing to call as they are doing so very well!
Wonder what adventures they will undertake on Friday!
