Sports Day 2018!

Yesterday we held our junior and senior high school sports day.

The international students and teachers really enjoyed the day. And so did all of the regular Japanese students.


This is one of the highlights of the school year for most of the students. Even students who do not like sports very much are able to join in on the fun cheering for their teams and sitting and chatting with her friends when they’re not doing anything.

If you have the chance to take part in such an event, it will probably become a lifelong memory for you, just as it is for many Japanese people.

Some of our international students will probably write a little about their day in their term blogs. You can read past blog articles too. Take a look on the left side and choose the May or June months to get past students' articles.

Rebecca's first term blog

After the third grade students graduated,I became a second grade student and welcomed the new students. We had club introductions. Our singing club introduced two songs. One was Winding Road and the other one was Beauty and the Beast. And our English club also introduced our activities to groups of students. I hope that many new students will attend our clubs.


I would also like to tell you about one of the biggest activities in our school, the sports day! This year I was in the purple team. We made our class T-shirt to like a Fanta drink shape. It was so cute! Then before the sports day we had practice. We played in three games. They were pulling sticks (like a running tug of war), Hannano Stage and the horse riding battle. We were worried when we were practicing. But when the day came, all of us were very excited. We tried our best to do the two matches and to encourage the players. At last we had the big running relay contest which is separated into teams by colors .The purple team always led for the entire race. At last when the runners reached the finish line all of the purple team students come out of the tent and ran around the grounds to express our joy. The purple team won the day with the most points! We had a wonderful memory that we will never forgot!

SGC - A new room at Seiritsu

We will be opening a new room soon.

This room will be called the SGC, the Seiritsu Global Center. (We haven't decided yet if it is Centre with an "er" or an "re"...)

The room will have a bit of an international flavor. Students will be able to come and enjoy the room after school and during lunch times. We will have the extensive reading books in this room as well as information on study abroad and things like TOEFL, TOEIC and Eiken training. Some classes will be held in this room during the day as well.

We will give you more information on the room soon but we wanted to show you the progress is happening.

It used to be the calligraphy room.


A lot of stuff had to be taken out and fixed up.


And now they have put in the walls and the floor.


And here you can see the wallpaper and such going in.


It is almost done...


It will be open soon! Please watch for the next blog post on the opening of the new room!

Sports day practice

The annual sports day is coming up soon. Our students are getting ready for that day. Every morning, every lunch and every day after school, classes are practising for the various activities that will be held at the event.


Many countries have a sports day at school but sports day in Japan is kind of special. They really know how to enjoy the event.

Take a minute and check out our videos on this page here:[ ] to get an idea of what the sports day in Japan can be like.

Good luck to everyone!

William's Ueno Excursion

In this excursion, we went to Ueno to visit the National Museum in order to get more knowledge of Japanese history.

In Ueno Park, there is a sculpture of Saigo Takamori, who is one of the innovators of the Meiji restoration. I really like the people who have done the innovations, so I’m gonna study more stuff about his story.

I met a nice guy from grade one. He comes from South Korea. We have many of the same hobbies, and we both speak English and Japanese very well. I'm looking forward to learning more Korean from him. lol. I have respect for our new friendship.

Gaoussou's excursion blog

Hi there, This is Gaoussou

Last thursday I took part in an excursion.

First we visited Ueno park, which is one of biggest and most famous parks in Tokyo.

We visited Ueno Museum as well and that was my favorite time because it allowed us to travel through Japan history.

We learned about many things: pottery, swords, how people dressed then, and so on.

I really enjoyed it and I can't wait for another!

JLPT Summer 2018

Are you thinking of taking the JLPT (Japanese Language Proficiency Test)?
Most of our students are not ready to take the exam this July. Quite a few took their test and passed in December. So the next exam is a little too early for them.

One student though didn’t make the deadline. Deadlines are very early. If you are thinking of taking the test, please make sure that you look into it at least six months before. Deadlines are typically 2 to 3 months before the test itself. So you want to get the paperwork in before that time.

The next deadline for the test in December is at the end of September. And they will start taking applications at the beginning of September. You will need to know which test to take and what will be on the test before you sign up.


Check out this link here for more information on the test:

And good luck!

William's Golden Week blog

In Golden Week, I went to a glorious place; Kamakura. It it a nice maritime city; people called it “the Hawaii of Japan”.

My uncle drove us to Kamakura. The situation of the road was pretty bad that day, full of traffic jams, but we still got there around 10 am.

The first shrine we went to is called Tsuruoka Hachiman-Ku. It’s a huge traditional Japanese shrine. A lot of tourists were there so it was really crowded. I’m very lucky that we got a chance to watch a Shinto ceremony in the shrine, but actually I don’t actually know much about what they were doing. lol

We went to Enoshima in the afternoon. It is a pretty, small island with mountains. I ate some seafood there. It was very fresh and delicious.

I want to go there again!

Gaossou's April blog

Hello! my spring break this year with my team was very cool, and we had a lot of fun. We went to a big basketball camp where we spent four days just playing games with other basketball teams.


We learned a lot of match systems at the camp. We also had to perfect our defense and offense as a team. I really appreciate all that I learned at this camp.
