25 Japanese teachers and officials visiting China from 12 June with the invitation of Department of International Cooperation and Exchange Ministry of Education, returned to Japan on 19 June, after completing their 8-day fruitful programme.
Participants gathered in Tokyo on 11 June for the pre-departure-briefing, and they left for China in the early morning on 12 June and visited Beijing, Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region and Shanghai.
They visited Department of International Cooperation and Exchange Ministry of Education, Education Department of Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, Primary and Secondary school, Special needs school and cultural facility in China. In each place, they learned the Chinese educational strategy and current situation. Participants are expected to make use of what they experienced in China by activities in Education for International Understanding (EIU) and Education for Sustainable Development (ESD). We hope the visit will lead to mutual exchanges between schools and students in two countries.
