2018 Entrance ceremony


Do you remember your first day at school of junior high or senior high?

For many people in North America, they do not. For many of us/them, you just show up at school, get your books, get your locker, get a list of your classes, and go home. However, here in Japan, there’s a little bit more involved with starting the new school year.

To begin with, there is a ceremony where the parents often attend. This year we have approximately 400 students joining our school. Most of them are for the senior high school but we have two classes of students joining us in the junior high as well. So on top of the 400 new students we had about another 700 parents and family members in the audience.

The ceremony is fairly short at our school. There are only a few speeches. One is given by the head of the student council. And there are speeches given by both year representatives for the junior high and the senior high.

The principal gives a speech as well. This year our new principal gave his first speech as principal. He had done may before as the vice-principal but this was his first as principal. It was a good speech.

The students finished up with class pictures and then went out to enjoy the rest of a wonderful day.

Good luck everyone! We look forward to working with you closely over the next three years!!
