Presentation of Certificates of Gratitude to Students from Osaka Gakugei High School


On December 13, Ambassador Ishikane awarded certificates of gratitude to 33 students from Osaka Gakugei High School, who are currently studying in Ottawa. The students were thanked for their contributions volunteering at various cultural events that were organized by the Embassy of Japan over the past year.

Prior to the awarding of certificates to the students, each student talked about what they had learned through studying as well as their memorable experiences in Ottawa. Ambassador Ishikane also shared his own experiences from studying abroad. The meeting proceeded in a relaxed and interactive atmosphere.
