Our JHMediaCrew reporter, Vincent Luong, is sharing his experience…

On 2 different occasions, you may have seen some Japanese students coming to visit our welcoming environment.  These guests were from Nichidai and Ishikawa School all the way from Japan. As we welcome them in, they got to experience what it is like to be a Canadian high school student and be part of our classroom culture!  Luckily, I got the chance to interview students from the two schools, Arata and Shuya. Arata says that one of the biggest differences is that our classroom sizes are a lot bigger than the ones in his school. He also really finds that the food is very delicious and the drinks are extra refreshing.  Lastly, he really seems to enjoy our school structure, the students within the school and the canadian music, dance, and sports. Our other guest, Shuya, is an amazing swimmer who also finds our school very different. One of the main differences that our school has is that we were able to have our phones out in class and it was a more engaging classroom.  Something that Shuya found that was different from Arata’s opinion is that the school is a bit small smaller than his school. Something Shuya will remember from Canada is his trip to Downtown Vancouver where he shopped for many canadian souvenirs.

In the end, I was glad that they both enjoyed our school’s environment.
