Toba High School accepted two international students who received Kakehashi Scholarship sponsored by the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology this year, and on August 26, they came to school for the first time. One is from Mongolia, and the other from Korea. They are going to study for about 7 months as members of the first year Global Course until the end of March. Kakehashi program (Japanese for "building bridges") "will provide full scholarships for 1,000 Asian high school students to study in Japan's public and private high schools over the next five years." It seemed that they had already made a lot of friends on the first day and were looking forward to the days to come at Toba.
