Opening of a Japanese school in the city of Arayat

LOCAL officials led by Governor Dennis Pineda and Arayat Mayor Maria Lourdes “Madir” Alejandrino spearheaded the opening of a Japanese training school here on Friday.

The school will provide language and vocational training to middle, high and high school students in this city.

The training center was built by Iris Corporation.

Company President Fumio Tamura and Congresswoman Omi Asako from Japan joined local officials at the inauguration of the Philippine Arayat Training School (PATS).

The school campus in Barangay Tabuan comprises three buildings overlooking the legendary Mount Arayat.

Pineda thanked PATS for helping to “develop excellent human resources that will meet the needs and requirements of Japanese industries.”

The school’s teaching method is based on E-Nihongo by Gakurinsha Corp which has abundant experience in Japanese teaching and e-learning.

The program also includes lessons on Japanese culture and business manners, according to reports.
