Fifth graders at the International School at Dundee (ISD) recently welcomed their pen pals from the Doshisha International Academy (DIA) in Kyoto, Japan.

The partnership between the schools, which began last year when ISD fourth graders were assigned fifth grade pen pals at DIA, culminated with a day-long visit to ISD by 47 Japanese students.

Activities included a hello ceremony, which had song and dance performances by students from ISD and DIA, as well as math games, origami demonstrations, shared recess and lunch.

The day concluded with a thank-you ceremony with autographs and small gift exchanges.
