Grade Six Field Trip to the National Diet of Japan

Grade Six had a wonderful learning experience when they got to interview a member of the House of Councillors of the National Diet of Japan; Mrs. Hiroe Makiyama, about politics and Governance in Japan. Mrs. Makiyama's daughter was in Grade Six last year and she was kind enough to take time from her busy schedule to present to our current Grade Sixes who are inquiring into how Government Systems can influence the lives of citizens.

Following the tour Mrs. Makiyama took time to answer questions from the students. Here is a clip with some samples:

On returning to school the students reflected on the trip. We all agreed that it was a really worthwhile learning experience and it has helped to raise a lot of interesting questions to inquire into over the coming weeks. Feel free to add your own reflection in the comments below.

  1. A very good educational experience for the girls.
    Although the future of my daughter is in her hands and she can be whatever she wants to be, I would be very proud if she became a diplomat.
