Good-luck Chase!

After 9 months of studying at Seiritsu, living in 2 different home stays and exploring the ancient and modern sights & sounds of Tokyo, Chase is finally heading home to Canada to start his post-secondary studies.


Here he is pictured with his homeroom teacher Honda-Sensei, right after all his homeroom classmates had given him a final farewell message and presents.


Chase completed the Japanese Language Proficiency Test Level 4 (JLPT N4) on Sunday, so for sure he'll be able to challenge the N3 test in Canada next winter as his language skills really improved during his time in Japan.


With his interests in animation, design and teaching, for sure we'll be seeing Chase here in Japan again. Best of luck with your college studies

On Monday Seiritsu said farewell to Binita, as she is returning to Canada to renew her university studies. Here she is pictured with her homeroom 3B and homeroom teacher Hamano-Sensei.


Over the last 4 months Binita's Japanese language skills greatly increased and she has made many Japanese friends from school so we hope she keeps up her language studies. Seiritsu looks forward to seeing her visit us on her future trips to Japan.


Good luck back at uni!

Connor's July update!

Hey there, Conner here!


its been a while since my last blog post and a lot of things have happened.


Obviously football is non stop here training 4 days per week and two games on the weekend.


But lately there have been a series of really important games for the Seiritz A team (U18's) and fortunately they have been doing very well and recently had a game against Teikyo High School in the semi final of the Tokyo championship, the winner of this game qualified for the "Mini World Cup" of Japanese high school football called the Interhigh championships. It was an intense game right from kickoff and it came down to a nail biting penalty shootout which Seiritz won!But the interesting thing about the game was that the whole soccer club was present to support the team and i think this shows something about the Japanese culture, in which everyone pulls together in a "all for one and one for all" mentality.


Cya Later!
