Japan Yamate Gakuin Exchange

Since 2016, OCDSB students and students at Yamate Gakuin High School in Yokohama, Japan, have participated in bi-annual cultural exchanges.

Japanese students come to Ottawa in April of even-numbered years for two weeks to stay with host families, attend school a few times, and participate in various tours and activities in and around the Ottawa area.

The exchange will resume for 2023 with students from Cairine Wilson S.S. Colonel By S.S., Gloucester H.S. and Canterbury H.S. participating.

The slides shown at our June 14 Information Session are linked here and a video recording of that session is linked here.
