International Guests from Australia!

On September 29 Seiritsu played host to Australian students from Fairhills school in Melbourne. For most of them this was their first time to come to Japan, so we were eager to show them how a Japanese High School works, as well as show them some Japanese culture!



The guests had a study partner all through the day, and experienced Japanese, English, Science and Math classes.





After the last class, we went to the Japanese-style room, where Nakamura Sensei gave a demonstration of the Tea ceremony. Then everyone was invited to make tea the traditional way. It was fun and educational (and delicious!).



We were told that all the students were 'buzzing' after their time at Seiritsu, so we are really happy that they had a great experience here!

If you are visiting Japan, as a group or even as an individual, we can provide experience days like this to you too! Please feel free to contact us about our various programs, including 'Experience Seiritsu'!

JET teacher Teresa's September 2017 Blog Post!

Teresa here!

Guess what was on everyone’s minds for the last two weeks? I’ll give you a hint.

Nothing? Okay; here’s another one!


Did you guess Seiritsu-sai, the best school festival ever? If so, you are… correct!!!


Just look at how attentive the crowds were for the amazing and professional performances by our own Seiritsu cheerleaders!

While giving as much support and love as possible to our students on stage, I also welcomed guests with the team and English Conversation Club members!


Here I am with Plink, the club vice-president! As you can see from the picture, she had brought some of her own Chinese tea from home to give the team a taste test. I instantly loved the aroma and taste. It reminds me of going out to dimsum (yum cha 饮茶) with my family back in the States!



Seiritsu-sai gave everyone the opportunity to meet up with students who had graduated and catch up. I got to meet two groups of students I had two years ago and even an old co-worker!


It’s always fun to reunite with old friends and students. I wish my schools in the States had school festivals!
