School Guidance Seminar for Children of Foreign Nationals
Coming from a different cultural background, most foreign parents living in Japan have a different idea of what further education should be. The lack knowledge about the Japanese school system and the language barrier make it difficult for the parent to fully understand the potential further education choices available to their child.
This Nagoya International Center seminar, co-hosted by the Nagoya Board of Education, will provide advice and possible options that students will have available to them once they have graduated from Junior High School. This will be followed with a speech by Rodrigo Igi – the first person of foreign nationality in Aichi who became an officially recognized teacher, as well as foreign students who have experienced these difficult choices, and a series of short presentations from local high schools.
English, Spanish, Portuguese, Filipino, and Chinese interpreters are available by reservation. After the seminar, representatives from a number of local high schools will be available to answer your questions. The seminar is free, however places are limited to 80 parents and students.
