“Konnichiwa! This means “hello” in Japanese, a phrase that will be heard throughout the morning on Friday 18 November. Why? On this day, IST will host a Culture Exchange Day with Grades 1 through 6 and 200 students from Tianjin Japanese School participating. This event will begin at 8:45 am and end at 11:45 am. Activities will take place in the ES building, and students will join together for origami art and gym games. In preparation for this day, please look for song sheets that will go home with your child. This will indeed be a fun morning!” From the Culture Exchange Day committee.
