Cllr Leonard Crosbie
I am delighted and honoured to be here at the RIKKYO School on the 40th anniversary of its foundation.
Over that time the School has sought to ensure the physical, intellectual and spiritual wellbeing of the students in an environment which one parent has described as “providing a family like atmosphere and in which the School never stops improving”. I admire the parents and the students who decide to seek education in England…a land so far from Japan.
In these days of globalization, the internet, Google, ets., and with ENGLISH becoming the common language of commerce, aviation, communications and medicine, the School under your Headmaster Mr. Munechika and staff, offer the ideal environment to prepare students for today’s challenging and competitive world.
The School’s work with local communities is greatly admired and Horsham would be delighted to engage with you in any such activities.
Thank you for your invitation and I wish the School and the students every success in the future.
