The 20 visiting student from Ono Cho, Japan, has a busy Tuesday learning about community pastimes, like curling, and our past through the Railway Museum and the Revelstoke Museum & Archives.
Visit Coordinator Wenche Beitel said that on Wednesday afternoon from 1 – 3 p m the Ono Cho students will be holding a Cultural Fair where classes from RSS will lean about their culture through activities such as a Japanese board game called Fuku Warai, calligraphy, toys such as traditional spinning tops and cup and ball, Ayatori (Cat’s Cradle), Origami and Japanese traditional badminton.
“The exchange finishes on Wednesday evening with a Farewell Party and the group departs early on Thursday morning,” she said. “It’s a very rewarding experience for everyone that is involved.”
