Liberal Studies and Geography Study Tour to Kyushu, Japan

This year, the Liberal Studies and Geography Panels organised a trip to Kyushu from 8th to 14th April with an aim of enriching our students’ knowledge about renewable energy in Japan and the Japanese culture.

Twenty F.3 to F.5 boys visited the Shinmoji Incineration Facility and Geothermal Power Plant of Hatchobaru, where they learned about the importance and effectiveness of renewable energy and the modern incinerator.

Our students also visited Xavier High School in Yamaguchi, of which its patron saint was also St. Francis Xavier. They observed various lessons ranging from English, Science, Information Technology to Physical Education, experiencing the Japanese Senior Secondary Education. They also mixed and made friends with the Japanese students through interactive games. They all had a pleasant time staying with their new friends and found the school visit meaningful.
