Visit of the Isahaya Agricultural Highschool

The Leiden Friends of Nagasaki Foundation paid its latest visit to the Isahaya High School for Agriculture.  They were greeted by Mr. Hayashi, the school’s director, head teacher Mr. Maeda and Mr. Uchikawa, head of the veterinary sciences department.

They spoke at length about the prospect of establishing ties wth the Netherlands, in particular to enhancing and enriching the school’s curriculum.  Naturally their interest lies with the Netherlands – a recognized leader in the field of agriculture.
The school offers a wide variety of courses including flower arranging (Ikebana), animal care (pet shop), agriculture and horticulture, farm and livestock and bio & life science studies.  Graduates are skilled in both management and research & development sectors in these courses.

At a press briefing the results of a 2-year study (from cultivation to finished product) were presented.  The product:  AsuTaro is a joint venture between university students and locale manufacturers.

The school is interested in establishing contacts in the Netherlands, interested parties are requested to follow this link to our website for further information.
