The departure date for the Japan 16 Trip is Tuesday 18th October 2016. Eight girls from Beverley High School will join with another 14 pupils from Hornsea School and Beverley Grammar School for the 18th year of links with Keiai Gakuen High School in Chiba, Japan. Following from the very successful Japan 15 trip which was the first visit by pupil in 6 years we have improved the trip further. The dates of travel have been altered to allow pupils more time to adjust to life with a Japanese family whilst seeing their peers during the day before the weekend in which they will be with their hosts all day. The itinerary has also been adapted to avoid the pupils having dead time in school and therefore they have more chance to experience Japan, its people and culture.
On Wednesday 15th June we had a Japanese Culture Day. An opportunity to meet the other pupils on the trip and learn about the Japanese culture. Pupils tried Sushi making at Oginos restaurant and had a question and answer session with Reiko one of the owners. The tasting of the Japanese dishes was particularly popular. This was followed by a presentation from representatives of Nippon Gohsei, who have a plant locally. It was nice that the company volunteered their services and that some of the representatives were parents of past-pupils of the school. The talk was very informative and the Japanese members of the Nippon Gohsei staff helped the pupils with speaking Japanese and the art of using chopsticks.
More information will appear in September and there will be a Parent/pupil Information Evening. I have attached a draft of the itinerary that we intend to follow for our trip and the flight details.
