The students of the Tadotsu High School and the Kagawa Prefecture School for the Deaf joined the first exchange activity program in the School for the Deaf in Takamatsu-shi, Kagawa Prefecture on May 22.

The five hearing high school students majoring in the marine production visited the school for the Deaf with the "aquarium".

About 30 Deaf students observed various tropical fish together, communicating with the visitors in writing, etc.

Nakagawa Tomoya (17), a Deaf high school senior, said, "I was glad one of the hearing students introduced himself by sign language. I hope the exchange program will continue from now on because I want to talk with hearing friends on various topics."

The Deaf students are going to visit the Tadotsu High School in July.
