A visit from the sister city

Eighteen Japanese students from Kimberley’s sister city of Annaka, Japan visited School District No. 6

Eighteen Japanese students from Kimberley’s sister city of Annaka, Japan visited School District No. 6 (Rocky Mountain) for a one-week summer program from August 16 – 22, 2015. This annual program involves ESL classes in the morning and activities in the afternoon.  The program continues to showcase the Kimberley area’s many attractions, events, and amenities.  This year local students once again joined the program to make friends and speak English with the Japanese students.  Some of them are hoping to visit Annaka in March, 2016 when the Rocky Mountain International Student Program is planning a return trip to Japan for students at McKim Middle School and Selkirk Secondary School.
