The idea of being students of a “bigger Soka School” comes alive on February 26 when SK students receive visiting fellow students from Soka University of Japan for a day of friendly interactions and educational activities together.
The children arrive at school to the warm and rousing welcome by the delegation of 18 “big brothers and sisters” from Japan. SK staff and students then engaged in a friendship exchange programme of song and dance performances with the SUJ students, followed by interactive activities in the classrooms.
This year’s exchange event marks the 24th visit under the Soka University’s Friendship Exchange Programme with overseas Soka Kindergartens, undertaken by the University’s student body. Global peace and harmony are ideals cherished by Soka Schools Founder Dr Daisaku Ikeda; and it is the students’ shared aspiration to translate it into exchanges across cultures and boundaries at the personal level. It is never too young to start with preschoolers.
