Sri UCSI signs Sister School Agreement with Japan’s prestigious Sano Nihon Daigaku
KUALA LUMPUR: Sri UCSI Secondary School recently signed a Sister School Agreement with Sano Nihon Daigaku Secondary School from Japan, making it the first in Malaysia along with schools in the United States, United Kingdom and Australia to engage with the prestigious Sano Nihon Daigaku Educational Group.
The Agreement signed by Datin Lily Ng, Chairperson of UCSI Group of Schools and Susumu Urata, Chairperson of Sano Nihon Daigaku Secondary School Board of Governors, will further strengthen the exchange programme collaboration between the two schools.
Aimed to promote education for international understanding and foster cross-cultural awareness, the inaugural exchange programme began last year when Sano Nihon Daigaku Secondary School welcomed 18 students from Sri UCSI. The students enjoyed the opportunity of participating in classes along with their Japanese counterpart and were the first group of foreign students to engage with the town’s mayor.
The event was also attended by Hiroyuki Orikasa, Director for the Japan Information Service, Embassy of Japan.
According to Sri UCSI Principal Tan See Miin, exchange programmes between countries are crucial to the development of our youths.
“World leaders and national leaders talk about global challenges at summits and conferences. We at Sri UCSI Secondary School together with our sister school Sano Nihon Daigaku Secondary School in Japan encourage our students to build friendship and we hope that the bonds forged among these young people will contribute towards enriching our world in years to come,” she said.
This year, Sri UCSI welcomed 32 students from Sano Nihon Daigaku Secondary School. This exchange programme allows Sri UCSI students to experience the Japanese culture within their own campus and encourages a global outlook among the youths.
Among the many activities conducted throughout the exchange programme are visitations to fruit orchards and Batu Caves, traditional craft sessions, as well as rubber tapping demos and processing.
