STMC students will be hosting students from a high school in Japan. This event is a cultural highlight for our students and a fundraising highlight for our bursary program.
The day begins with a welcoming ceremony and cultural presentation. We then create buddy pairs, one Japanese student with one STMC student. They go on a school tour and attend classes with their buddy. During lunch, students share cultural artifacts, stories and many laughs.
The end of the day always comes too soon and it is clear that friendships have been formed. At the goodbye ceremony, we present our new Japanese friends with a certificate honouring them as members of our community.
