Participating UAE and Japanese Schools Enjoy Cultural Exchange
On October 7, four students from two KWN participating schools in the United Arab Emirates visited Japan together with teachers and Education Ministry's officials. The group enjoyed cultural exchange with students from Otemon Gakuin Elementary School in Osaka. The UAE schools - Abdullah Bin Al Zubeir and Almajd Model School - produced videos that won awards at the UAE's KWN National Contest in 2010 and 2011.
Exercising their Japanese skills, the KWN members from the UAE first greeted an assembly of their Japanese counterparts, then enjoyed meeting the 3rd-grade children. The Japanese members treated their guests to a piano performance and traditional Japanese games and karate. They also tried Japanese calligraphy, drawing a Japanese character meaning "a friend" and showed Arabic script to the Japanese members.
