An international school in Kuala Lumpur and a primary school in Nara Prefecture started an exchange program among their students.
Read on to see what sort of interaction will go on between them throughout the school year.
Sri Aria School is an international school in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Based on the British, Finland and Japanese education systems, it is one of the leading schools in Malaysia for student-centred education.
An exchange program took place with Nara Ikuei Elementary School in Nara Prefecture. The school conducts educational activities to foster communication skills and deepen intercultural understanding.
On April 21, the first interaction day, 1st and 2nd-year students from both schools used Zoom to freely present about each other’s school, food, culture, customs and history. Nara Ikuei Elementary School’s 1st-year students introduced large pine cones and flowers in their flower beds. The 2nd-year students performed the song “My Neighbour Totoro” with dancing. One of the children said, “I’ll look up the country of Malaysia on the globe when I get home”. It was a day for the participated children opening their eyes to the world.
Exchanges between both schools will continue to take place every two weeks for the rest of the year.
Tamai Investment Educations, the coordinator of the exchange between the schools, is a global company that introduced online Japanese language teaching materials to Ranchi University (a prestigious private university in India).
The company’s skill-building materials and practical training have garnered attention from the international education community. And are now being introduced in Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam, Myanmar, India and other countries around the world.
