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.

We are tentatively planning to resume this exchange in the spring of 2023 with OCDSB students traveling to Japan in the summer of 2023. More details will be available by June, 2022. Please check here regularly for updates.

OCDSB students from west-end schools (Bell H.S., Earl of March S.S., West Carleton S.S., Sir Robert Borden H.S.) then travel to Yokohama in July of that year to stay with host families and participate in various tours and activities in and around the Tokyo area. We are looking at alternating which schools will participate in 2023 so as to give opportunities to students from different parts of the city to benefit from this experience.
