Sahori in Australia!

The new school year has just begun in Australia and once again we are proud to have a student representing us at St. Mary’s College, Nigawa Gakuin’s sister school in Ipswich, QLD. The students and teachers at St. Mary’s, along with her host family, have welcomed Sahori with open arms, ensuring that the transition into her new surroundings has been both smooth and exciting. The year ahead will provide many challenges, but we trust that Sahori will make the most of this wonderful opportunity and be a fine ambassador for our two schools to further develop our friendship. As always, the noticeboard on the 2nd floor in the high school will have regular updates from Sahori as well as photos and information about the exchange program with St. Mary’s College

1月になり、オーストラリアの学校では新学年・新学期が始まりました! そして今年度も仁川学院高校から1名、姉妹提携校のSt. Mary’s Collegeへ留学生を送り出せたことを我々一同は誇らしく思っています。留学先のオーストラリア・クイーンズランド州イプスウィッチにあるSt. Mary’s Collegeでも、生徒、先生方、ホストファミリーの皆さんが諸手を挙げて我々の生徒・サホリを大歓迎してくれています! この留学期間で多くの挑戦にぶつかるでしょうが、彼女ならきっとこの留学という素晴らしい機会を最大現に活用し、仁川学院とSt. Mary’s Collegeの友好関係が更に深まるような、橋渡しとしての役割もになってくれると信じています。今後も、本校2階の留学掲示板で、サホリからの定期報告としてのレポートや写真を掲示していきます!

Welcome back, Rena!

The first ever Nigawa students to participate in our Australian exchange program has returned to Japan after a successful year at St. Mary’s College Ipswich. Rena took on the many challenges that international students face with a positive attitude and great spirit which enabled her to improve her English and understanding of Australian culture. As our first “ambassador”, she has paved the way for future exchanges both to and from Australia, and we are sure that she will make the most of this experience as she continues her school life here at Nigawa.

Thank you to St. Mary’s College, the two host families and all of those who supported Rena during her time in Australia.

Good luck, Rena!

Our first ever student to study abroad in Australia began her one-year exchange at the end of January, the start of the school year in Australia. After spending the first few days with her host family, Rena attended her first day of school at St. Mary’s College, in full uniform, where she met her new teachers and friends and underwent an orientation in order to familiarize herself with the new surroundings. She also gave a wonderful speech in English at the opening assembly in front of the entire school! Being the first Nigawa representatitive at our new sister school is a big responsibility, but we trust she will do well in her new environment and wish her all the best for the year ahead. The noticeboard on the 2nd floor in the high school will have regular updates from Rena along with photos and information about the exchange program with St. Mary’s College.




先月末、本校からのオーストラリア留学生の第一期生である女子生徒が一年間に及ぶ留学生活をスタートしました。オーストラリアに到着し、数日間ホストファミリーとの時間を過ごした後、すぐにSt. Mary’s Collegeでの新学期が始まりました。始業式では、全校生徒の前で英語でのすばらしいスピーチを披露した伶奈さん。St. Mary’s Collegeの制服もとても似合っています。姉妹提携校協定を結んだSt. Mary’s Collegeにおいて、初めての仁川学院生代表として果たす役割も大きいですが、彼女ならしっかりとその期待にも応えてくれることでしょう! すばらしい留学生活を送ってきてくださいね! 高等学校二階の掲示板でも、彼女の留学生活の様子やSt.Mary’s Collegeとの交換留学プログラムの情報などを定期的にお伝えしていく予定です。
