Seiritsu's ID students train for Hazards!

Although most of our international students aim to take the Japanese term exam tests just like their Japanese home room peers, those still learning the language have the opportunity to go on School excursions with the International Department.

So, while Connor, Marina and Sora were trying their best with the Term 2 exams on July 9, Brent and Peter took students Tai, Jeremy and Meg (a Japanese returnee born in Canada) to the ikebukuro Life Safety Learning Center. There we learned about the great Kanto-Tohoku disaster of March 11, 2011, and also what we can do to ensure our maximum safety in Fire and earthquake emergencies.

We experienced putting out fires, crawling through smokey corridors...


...and the high level of a level 7 Shindo (Japanese measurement based on sensation) earthquake in a simulator.



Also, a News station TBS was filming in the center that day too, and so Seiritsu staff and students were filmed and interviewed for their evening programme NStar!

We hope to have footage of this soon, and will post it if we get a chance.

However, all students agreed that going to the Life Safety Center was an invaluable experience.

Seiritsu Baseball team's "Koshien" Qualifiers!

It's the season that all High School baseball fans look forward to every year!

The All Japan High Schools Baseball Championship qualifiers have started, and Seiritsu are looking to repeat their performance of four years ago when they managed to enter the main Championship for the first time.

The tournament, known as "Koshien" because of the staduim it is held at in Osaka, is shown nationally on TV during the summer, with scouts for the Major League teams in Japan looking out for their latest potential star.

Seiritsu is currently in the 3rd round, having beaten Ikebukuro's Rikkyo High School 10 runs to 2.

Good luck guys, We're all cheering for you!

Jeremy's June blog post

Hey Jezza here,
June is over and starting to see some good progression with football.

The last two weeks I have been training and playing regularly, without picking up any irritating injuries. This is the first time I have completed a whole week since coming back from injury- which was a milestone for me and one of my short term goals!

Also, on the weekend we won both our games with me scoring 3 and providing 4 assists. For me there is no better feeling than scoring a goal after returning from a long injury. It is a indescribable feeling and is hard to explain to people, but it is one I look forward to experiencing more frequently as the weeks go by!

Besides football, the final tests are approaching with Japanese history, English and Japanese among my subjects being tested then it's straight into summer holidays. I can't wait- Football everyday! :)
Jezza out !
