The group did a demo-teaching at the Grade 8 level of Hiroshima Saniku Gakuin and Fuzoku Junior High school and to Education Majors of Ehime University. Each student did two demo-teaching on the same lesson. No less than the Director of Fuzoka Junior High said that the Educ students’ lessons and demonstrations have positively changed their views of and expectations for Philippine education. The reception for the group was so great that they were featured in the local newspaper and television news the next day.
