The RPA team follows the Japanese fiscal year, which means with the April teacher turn over, we also have our annual RPA turn over, with 8/10 of the RPAs changing this year.
Kristen, former Chuno RPA
Thanks to all the JETs in Gifu prefecture for making these past two years as a Chuno RPA so awesome! Having the opportunity to get to know and help out so many JETs through SDCs, orientations, and community events has been a privilege. I hope we’ve made a positive impact on your life here, even if just to remind you to bring your lunch to SDC. Keep doing you, Gifu!
Phinashia, former Hida RPA
Hey everyone! It’s been great serving as part of the RPA team this past year. I enjoyed seeing each of your sunny faces at various events and at SDC. I hope I was able to help you out in some way, whether it was helping you survive the first few weeks of self-introductions or helping out with planning and executing various training sessions we all experienced together. Here’s to life and new experiences going forward.
Sarah, former Gifu RPA
"So long, and thanks for all the fish!"
Josiah, former Tono RPA
Hi everyone! It was great serving as an RPA in Gifu these past few years, and while I’m not always the most social creature I really enjoyed the chance to work with and meet so many wonderful people. It’s time for me to get ready to move on to my next job but I know that you’re in good hands with the new RPA team. I hope I’ll see a lot of you at the Sayonara Enkai this summer!
Victoria, former Tono RPA
Thank you to the leaving RPA team, it was a pleasure talking over you in meetings! I’m so happy we were able to put together two lovely SDCs, and finally got rid of the Keynote speaker, go us! I hope you all go on to do wonderful things inside or outside of Japan.
To the new RPA team, I’m sure you’ll go on to reach new heights never before seen on JET.
To current Gifu JETs, you’re cool and don’t ever change. Thanks for putting the いいな in いなか.
Tom, former Seino RPA
Hey everyone, it’s been a pleasure being part of your RPA team these past two years. Thanks for everything and all the best for the future.
Denton and Lauren are also leaving the RPA team.
