SANGAM Sadhu Kuppuswamy Memorial College of Nadi is one of several schools in Fiji that will host students from Korea International School in Japan as part of a cultural exchange program.

A group of educationists from Osaka have been touring the country in search of potential exchange program schools where it would send its students and teachers to learn about the different cultures that exist in Fiji.

Visiting SSKMC on Friday, they were given a brief introduction of the cultural lessons and backgrounds of Fiji.

The visit comes in light of Korea International School's aim to educate its students — principally Koreans in Japan — to live creatively beyond borders, be thoughtful about their own identities, able to move freely between countries and cultures thanks to reliable academic ability and rich individuality.

SSKMC principal Anita Gounder said the school was happy that the Japanese school showed interest in their curriculum.
