FOOD culture was the topic discussed during the second session of the online exchange program between Kinrakai High School in Japan and Angelicum School Iloilo last Oct. 1, 2022.

Sixteen participants from Angelicum and 14 participants from Japan each had five minutes to discuss the cuisine and specialties of their respective nations.

“It made me feel somehow proud that we can show off our culture and what’s life here in the Philippines to the international students through our food,” shared Kiera Garcia, one of the learners chosen to represent the school.

This year, Angelicum School Iloilo hopes to establish a number of exchange programs, one of which is this one with a Japanese high school in collaboration with With the World Inc. and NGO LOOB.

“Angelicum School Iloilo aims that through programs like this, its learners will become more proactive and empowered young global citizens,” said Aura Carmela Ferrariz-Sendico, assistant school principal.

Ma. Gracia d’Rose Gallinero, coordinator for External Partnerships and Relations of Angelicum School Iloilo, was also present in the said session.

Before the end of the AY 2022-2023, there are still two scheduled sessions for this international partnership. /END
