Welcome Home!

After their 10-month lifechanging experience in America, the 3 students who had been studying at Saint Mary’s Catholic High School in Phoenix, U.S.A. returned to Japan at the end of May. Following a week of tough final exams, their final few days were spent saying farewell to the host families, teachers and friends who supported them during an experience that has given them a new outlook on the world and will no doubt have a profound impact on their thought process into the next stage of their lives. Thanks to their eye-opening and informative reports posted on the exchange noticeboard each month, all of us here in Japan were able to follow their journey step by step and can therefore understand the challenges that they faced as well as the benefits that such an experience can bring. After settling back into school life in Japan, they will participate in the orientation program for the next group of students that are due to depart for the U.S.A. this August.

Nigawa Gakuin would like to extend our deepest appreciation to our friends at Saint Mary’s Catholic High School in Phoenix and all of the people who supported our students during their wonderful experience. We look forward to your continued support from this summer.
