The 2009 year report of the 2nd semester
43 graduates made graduation recitals as the culmination of their 2 years or 1.5 years of study. Each group of students decided themes for each group, conducted interviews and questionnaire surveys about them, or examined documents, and presented the results obtained using Power Point. There were themes such as "About sleep and student", "Let's review! Eating habits", "Ideas from drama“. Juniors also actively participated, listening diligently to seniors' presentations and asking questions.
Chitose Junior High School Exchange Meeting
This is an exchange party with the local junior high school held every year. The students make exchanges after dividing into three groups - “Music and art”, “Word and play”, and “Cuisine”. After listening to the junior high school students' presentations on each theme, they all work together. In "Music and art", they taught Chinese songs and sang them together. For “Word and play”, they taught everyday conversation phrases. In "Cuisine” they made dumplings. And at the end everyone ate the dumplings.
Speech contest by foreign students
In the speech contest by foreign students in Fukuyama City, two students from China, Ms. Huang Chunyong (黄春涌) and Ms. Tengyi Ye (滕乙曄) and Vietnamese student Mr. Hai participated from our school. They talked about what they felt in their study abroad life, what they learned, and so on. And Mr. Hai received the Excellence Award with the theme "If it’s going to improve, then a lie is OK”. Also, at the subsequent exchange party, they also had a great time by interacting with local students and foreign students from other schools.
