Wing Kids Study Tour in NishiNippon newspaper

Just received this from Ms Kanae from the APCC office today! She attached a series of articles which Nomura-san, the journalist who came with the study tour delegates to cover the event in March, had written in NishiNippon.

NishinNippon circulates the highest number of newspaper in Fukuoka according to Ms Kanae and we are happy that the 1st Wing Kids Study Tour in Malaysia program was featured in it.

Nomura-san had precisely described the day to day activities that the Wing Kids went through in Malaysia in this article. Unfortunately for us who do cannot read in japanese, we can just well.. look at the photos I've attached below :) To those who can'd be nice if you guys could translate it for us ;p

But anyhow..we at BCM are more than happy with this article by Nomura-san! Thank you so much and we'll try to put up a detailed post regarding the Wing Kids Study Tour program that happened in March for all of you to read soon :)
