Toba High School accepted 14 students of Lycée Nevers, which is located in southern France, for one-week study experience at Toba on October 15 (Tu). As a kick-off event, we had a ceremonial meeting, in which all the French students met their host families. At the beginning of the event, 3 volunteer students gave their brief presentation about Toba, followed by the gift exchange between both of the schools. After that, all the students had a good time talking with each other using Japanese and English, and got to know each other better, since almost all the Toba students do not speak French well. It seemed that both French and Toba students enjoyed this occasion, and were looking forward to the study experience programs at Toba starting tomorrow.
