10th Anniversary Campaign

Soba Lessons!

This week, ISAK G-10 students, Minami, Coco and Linlin, attended a soba making class hosted by the Karuizawa farmer’s market. The students were accompanied by ISAK’s computer science teacher, Ms. Jyothi Venugopal.

Minami shared some thoughts from their experience:

The CAS project, Unlock Karuizawa, has been communicating with the farmers’ market. We are working to help Karuizawa improve tourism. The soba class is organized by the farmers’ market and they want more tourists from overseas to come to the class. We are planning to help them by translating during the class. In exchange for our help in the future, they offered us the class for free. 

We had such an amazing time there! I am Japanese but I’ve never learned how to make soba and it was much harder than I expected. As a Japanese, it was a really good to experience something new from my own culture and the soba we made was the most delicious ever!

Imagine… if there was an ISAK lower school!

Dear Friends of UWC ISAK,

UWC ISAK is celebrating its 10th anniversary! We are proud of where we’ve come from, and we are excited about the next decade.

At this important milestone, we are wondering – in pursuit of broadening our impact, could an ISAK Lower School be considered as one of the options and would it be feasible? A school that embraces ISAK values and vision for a better future?

As we embark on this journey, if you would like to participate in possible market research and receive updates, please subscribe to our mailing list.
