Exchange Program
Each year, since 1980, we have sent approximately 10 students to America, Europe, or Australia for one month. This program is called "Hakua no Tsubasa", White Wings. "Hakua" is our symbol color, this literally translates as "White Plaster". It is in remembrance of the first school building whose walls were plastered in white- its name was 'Hakua Jo', meaning- White Castle.
As of 2015, we have been established as a SGH, at this time we adopted a different exchange program which goes by the name of the SG Exchange Program.
