Video Meet Wows Japan and New Zealand!

Video Meet Wows Japan and New Zealand!

On November 21, 20 KWN members from the Kuki Elementary School in Iwate Prefecture in Japan and 28 members from the Christchurch South Intermediate School in New Zealand had their first Video Meet. After describing their countries and exchanging opinions and questions about each other's culture, the students had an enjoyable time playing quizzes and games.

For introductions at the beginning, the Kuki members performed a folk dance called YOSAKOI, while the Christchurch team performed a New Zealand folk dance called HAKA. They even played a scissors-paper-rock game over the video screen (photo).
Teachers from both schools gave high praise to the Video Meet, with one teacher saying, "It was a very valuable experience for everyone."
