There is always an extra air of excitement and warmth as we welcome the staff and students of our sister school Seishin Gackuen into our community. Right from the first welcome afternoon, students and staff from both schools were mingling together, excited about the opportunity to learn more about each other and grow friendships. As Mr Masao Nakagawa, explained in his speech to the Year 6-12 Welcome Assembly, for the students involved in visiting and hosting it is a once in a lifetime experience and life changing for many.
Interactions of this type help to grow a sense of global citizenship where we learn to see ourselves as part of the same global village with responsibility to care for all people and our shared natural environment. We look forward to the remaining days of the Seishin visit and the ongoing development of this special relationship between the two schools.
