On February 27 the high school students were invited for a school exchange with Sei Toku High School, a school for girls in Shimokitazawa. It was a day of meeting new people and our students did a wonderful job of representing TIPS in the wider community. First, students in groups of 2 – 3 were given a tour of the facilities at Sei Toku High by our host students. This was followed by a shared home economics class in which students cooked rice omelets and salad to share for lunch. Finally, TIPS students and Sei Toku students took a tour of the well known neighborhood of Shimokitazawa. Many thanks to Ms. Hisami Kimoto for arranging the important student exchange.
