Chairman Hirose gave the opening remarks at Tuesday's meeting.
A meeting was held in the Ikata Town Office last Tuesday, October 1st, to report on the 2013 International Exchange Program. After a report by the Ikata Superintendent of Education, Mr. Kono, summarizing the exchange program this year, each student proceeded to report on their homestay experience in Red Wing. I was very surprised at how well the students stated their thoughts and opinions, moreover how clear and to the point their reports were. Pictures from that they took during their homestay were displayed on a screen behind them.
Following the student presentations was a brief presentation of opinions from the Ikata host families, followed finally by a closing greeting from the the Vice-Chairman of the Ikata International Exchange Association and former mayor of old-Misaki, Mr. Miyamoto.
