Three students from Osaka in Japan, who are part of a cultural exchange programme, are enrolled at Sangam Sadhu Kuppuswamy Memorial College in Nadi.

College principal Anita Gounder said the Japanese students would be attending the school for one year to learn about English and Fijian cultural practices.

“The three Japanese students will be completing their Year 10 study with other students of the school,” Ms Gounder said.

“They are here for a cultural exchange programme outside their country so that they can learn how the education system in Fiji operates and learn English.

“Under this programme they will also learn cultural exchange programmes with other ethnic groups in Fiji.”

Ms Gounder said the buddy system, which was introduced at the school, was of great help to these students.

“Basically buddies help the weaker students during lunch and recess breaks and at times after school,” she said.
