Delegates from South Korea Visit St. Joseph’s CSS, Cornwall
A delegation from South Korea visited St. Joseph’s Catholic Secondary School in Cornwall on December 1, as part of a cultural-exchange program called the “Village Visit Program.” The program was started in 2015 as a way for South Korean officials to build ties with municipal governments outside of Ottawa; a means to explore political, economic, social and cultural ties.
The visit to the school was an opportunity for the delegation to learn about the programs and opportunities for learning at St. Joseph’s, which is currently attended by several international students from South Korea. The delegation also presented information to the schools Grade 10 students about Korean culture and arts. Korean cuisine and food tasting was available for the students, along with a Taekwondo demonstration.
