A sports festival was held for three days from August 25th to 27th, 2017.
A total of 19 staff members, 17 Japanese staff, and 2 staff from China and Malaysia traveled and managed the event. We held major competitions such as tug of war, skipping rope, and relays at "UNDOKAI" in Japan. There was also an orchestra performance and TV shooting, and it was a lot of excitement.

A cultural exchange event was also held in the afternoon of the final day. College students from seven countries, including Japan, Indonesia, and Spain, participated and set up meals, dance, and play booths to entertain the children.
The equipment for the sports festival was handmade by the teacher. We also handmade invitations and tickets for parents and managed the event in cooperation with local teachers.

On the final day of the sports festival, TV stations and community leaders visited the festival, making it a community-based activity.
