Gifu Kita High School Exchange

Dates: August 16 – September 5, 2010
Trip leaders: Yoko Iwasaki, Rieko Mine, Veronica Ledoux
Registration closed: 14 Japanese language students enrolled

During an 18-year exchange between CGS and Gifu Kita High School, more than 100 Japanese language students and 13 teachers have traveled to Japan. In turn, 21 teachers and 90 students from Gifu have visited CGS. The exchange trip gives students a unique cultural and language experience. They are expected to dedicate themselves completely to pre- and post-trip study, understanding that their time in Japan is a cultural immersion, not a typical tourist venture. The trip includes 10 days travel in Tokyo, Kamakura, Kyoto, and Hiroshima followed by an 11-day homestay with a Gifu Kita High School student. CG students will attend classes and activities and participate in the three-day Kitakou-sai 北校祭 Cultural and Sports Day events.
