This week we have welcomed 18 students and 3 teachers from our sister school in Kyoto, Nishiyama High School. The students are being hosted by families during their 2 week stay. For some Academy girls, they are now able to reciprocate the warm welcome and hospitality they received whilst visiting Nishiyama last September. While for others, this experience promises to be the start of an enduring friendship with Nishiyama High School and its students. Positive cultural exchange is an important part of the language experience at the Academy.
