CAHS Foreign Language Students Leaving for Japan

The Charlotte Amalie Highs School French Club is sending 43 students to the land of the rising sun, Japan. They will be escorted by French instructor Madam Idalia Dockery and will visit Japan on a 10-day educational and cultural trip from April 25 through May 5.

The tour will include a bullet train ride from Hakone to Kyoto, with stays also in Tokyo and Osaka. The delegation hopes to also make a stop in the historic area of Hiroshima. Throughout the tour will be visits to famous landmarks, shrines, temples, castles, gardens, a cruise on the Sumida River and other special attractions.
Madam Dockery said, “The students are really excited about this trip. We have been studying the culture of Japan for several weeks now in preparation of the trip, and they are ready to apply all that they have learned and eager to learn even more. My main goal for this trip, and in general, for every tour, is for the students to come away with a new perspective and information. Asia is the up and coming Mecca for business, and there are countless opportunities for them to be exposed to study prospects and careers such as import/export and translation, and to learn about establishing businesses and the like.”
The tour was organized under the guidance of Education First Tours, a 44-year accredited international traveling company for teachers and students. Also included in the delegation are several teachers, a parent, co-group leader Deborah Donovan and Principal Carmen Howell.
