Eight 11th graders, accompanied by Mr. Hikosaka (art & craft teacher) and Mr. Murakami (English teacher), made a trip to Canada for 9 days. They stayed for a day in Vancouver, six days at Shawnigan Lake School (one day longer than our previous visits), and a day in Victoria.
Shawnigan Lake School is a boarding school located in a stunning setting with beautiful lakes, forests and hills, and our students stayed with Shawnigan students in their dormitories. Our students had the opportunity to join their classes and club activities. They also enjoyed hiking, boat sailing, bowling, and parties. They tried their best to employ English, which they had been learning for four years, and had a great time.
Mr. Murakami gave a workshop on his favorite board game Othello, while Mr. Hikosaka taught Shawnigan students how to make and fly boomerangs.
Azabu students and teachers had a wonderful time, and we really appreciate
the hospitality we received in Shawnigan.
