Year 8 Japanese Excellence Programme Residential Trip to Chaucer College, Canterbury

For the second year running, our Year 8 Japanese Excellence programme students were welcomed in April by Chaucer College, Canterbury. The week’s integration programme was shared with two schools from The Shumei Foundation, Japan – Kawagoe and Yachiyo Junior High schools.

It was a wonderful experience for our young Japanese learners to meet, study with and befriend Japanese students of a similar age, and their language skills benefitted from the communication throughout the week in lessons, sports activities and trips to Dover Castle and Canterbury city centre.

The week ended with a well-deserved graduation ceremony in which Year 8JEP were presented with certificates for their achievements. Congratulations to them for their hard work and excellent effort throughout the week!
