Last July 20, St. Francis of Assis School of Silay City were visited by Japanese students who were sent by the AKO-IKAW Japan-Negros Partnership for Environmental Protection Foundation, Inc. for a 4-day outreach program. There were eight of them, namely, Miyabi Shibata, Mari Seino, Miai Koyam, Minami Takeguchi, Ayumi Nishigawa, Hinako Yoshida, and their teachers, Sensei Taro and Sensei Makoto Hada. Their visit was coordinated by SFAS alumna, Jessa Jane Carumba, who works at the said foundation as a Training Center Manager.
The purpose of their trip was for environmental exposure. The Grade 10 students accompanied them to do Mangrove planting at Sitio Dapdap, Barangay Lantad in Silay and they also went to the Carbin Reef of Sagay City.
