With sadness we said goodbye last night to our 15 students from Japan. We have created a link for the future between our schools, our towns and our countries and we will be continuing to maintain this close relationship over the years to come.
What greater tribute could the students pay to our school than to give their rendition of our national anthem.
Thanks to the teachers and the host families who made this possible. More pics here.
Athy College is delighted to welcome 15 Japanese students, principal and English teacher from Sapporo N High School. The students are spending two weeks studying English and participating in classes of various disciplines at the college.
With a long history of over a hundred years Sapporo Nishi High School is well known as one of Hokkaido’s leading high school with unique culture and spirit. They have been designated a Super Science High School (SSH) by the Ministry for Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) and are educating youths to be highly talented leaders with global mindsets in science technology and medicine, continuously working to improve their creativity and originality.
Principal of Athy College, Richard Daly welcomed the students and their principal Hiroshi Maekawa to Ireland and to Athy. He commented on the existing links between the locality and Japan citing the Japanese Gardens, The Sundai School and Ernest Shackleton as examples.
“Our emphasis on STEM subjects can only be enhanced by this strong link with such a prestigious Super Science High School” he said.
Greeting the audience Principal Hiroshi Maekawa included Irish phrases in his address and looked forward to a close association between the two schools.
