OPU International Students Visited to Elementary Schools in Misaki Town

LastUpDate: October 12, 2018

On September 11, 2018, we had  Field Trip for international students. 24 international students from China, Korea, Thai, Vietnam, Bangladesh, France, Germany, Russia, 2 Japanese students and 5 university staffs joined to this program. For this year, we visited Misaki town which has southernmost of Osaka.
The Field Trip 2018 is subsidized by the Nakajima Foundation and supported by JASSO, and supported by Misaki Town Office, Misaki Town Board of Education, and local elementary schools.

In the morning, the students group visited Aoki Shofuan Japanese cake factory, where they could see and learn the manufacturing process and the quality control of the products through the window.

After observed the factory, students visited to Tanagawa and Fuke elementary school. Both schools are small-scale school and they have a nursery in the school.  On the day, international students were highly welcomed by nursery and elementary school children. International students visited all classes and had lunch together with school children. A student from Bangladesh who took part in this program said, “I am impressed to see that the system of elementary education in Japan is different from my home country. It encourages children to learn the importance of teamwork and being independent.”
Each participant discovered something new, even though it was a short visit.

In the afternoon, international students visited Osaka Prefectural Youth Marine Center and enjoyed marine sports.

International students had fruitful experience through this program for a day.
