Welcome Party for 2nd group of Osaka Gakugei Senior High School


On January 19th, Ambassador Monji attended a Welcome Party for 33 students of the second group from Osaka Gakugei High School, hosted by Young People’s Language School (YPLS) which is part of Ottawa Carleton Education Network (OCENET).

At the beginning of the party, Ambassador Monji gave an encouraging speech to students. He encouraged them to learn a lot about Canada, but also learn more about Japan to disseminate to Canadians as “ambassadors” in addition to learning English as their main purpose during their stay in Canada.

Students will take part in a homestay and study at language schools or at local high schools for the next year. At the party, the students were warmly welcomed by their host families and the director and staff of YPLS.


Greetings from Mr. Thomas Clark, Osaka Gakugei High School Ambassador Monji
