Japanese Exchange Students

Japanese Exchange Students share culture at Gloucester HS
Posted on 09/01/2023

Throughout the evening of Tuesday, April 18th, exchange students from Yamate-Gakuin School in Yokohama, Japan, set up many interesting displays in the foyer at Gloucester High School. Attendees at the event learned about and could participate in Japanese arts and culture, including trying out calligraphy, Japanese games, kimonos, and kendo, among many other traditions. Towards the end of the evening the audience gathered in the auditorium to see a series of cultural performances that included martial arts, singing, and dancing. Almost 80 Japanese students were hosted by four OCDSB high schools and stayed with local students and their families to experience Canadian culture. In the summer, the reciprocal part of the exchange will take place when 34 Ottawa students will be travelling to Japan to stay with the students who came to Ottawa.
