TWENTY-seven Japanese exchange students were welcomed to Aldercar Community Language College in Langley Mill.
During a week-long stay, the pupils from the country attended school with their exchange partners and visited local sights including Shipley Country Park.
Pupils from John Flamsteed Community School in Denby were also involved in the exchange.
The return visit to stay with families in Toyota City, Aichi Province, Japan, will take place in October. The twinning link was established in 1998.
