It's Entrance Examination season!
All over Japan, millions of schoolchildren are getting ready for their next academic step by taking entrance exams for their chosen junior and senior high schools. This is very important, as being in a well-linked high school can make progressing to university, and even employment, much easier.
This is a common scene in schools all around Japan for the next few weeks! (source: http://flix66.com/ copyright: Studio Ghibli)
At Seiritsu, we are hoping to see an increase of interest after our recent national entries at Baseball and soccer, as well as other famous Seiritsu alumni making noticeable progress in their chosen sports. This includes former international student Michael Fitzgerald (now 舞行龍 ジェームズ), who is a first-team regular for J1 team Niigata Albirex.
We're really looking forward to seeing the fresh faces in the coming school year; good luck everyone!
