"Experience Enriches You" (Free Speech)
Hot, hot, hot in Kasuga East Junior High School. The fever is on, students wake up early to go to school to join club activities in the morning every day. There are Sports, Arts and Cultural Club Activities.
“Good shot!” The gym is filled with positive and vibrant energy. Students easily throw a 3 pointers ball into the net. “Great footwork!” They train hard and have fast reflexes.
“Serve the ball!”Students move at great speed and heights to strike the ball. The girls’ team greeted me warmly, with their happy smile.
３. Table tennis
A table tennis game can be very intense, watching the light weight ball flying in all directions I wonder how it is possible to get it bounce on and off the table. Students training hard along their encouraging coach.
Kendo is a modern Japanese martial art, descended from swordsmanship (kenjutsu) and uses bamboo swords (shinai) and protective armour (bogu). Kendo is a way to discipline the human character, seeing the students in the training, I am lost for words for the spirit is beautiful and peaceful.
“Swing your bat!” “Run!” “Hold your bat higher!” “Nice Shot!”You can hear the intense and passion in the coaches voice. Boys become man when they are in the field playing baseball. I cannot be more impressed. Powerful team work says it all.
“Excellent ball control!” The soccer team is in training, dribbling and kicking the ball on the field. Team work runs the show!
With great confidence, students hit each ball that flew across the net at great speed and force. “Hit it with your best shot!”
It’s a all girls team, looking strong and handsome in their great team work. “Catch the ball” “Hit it!” “Run!” The teams’ voices echoes in the air．
Swimming comes natural to the human mind and body, powerful stroke and fast speed, gliding like a fish. “Have you reach the goal?!”In lightning speed, “I have”.
１０. Track & Field
Training together as a team, running and encouraging each other. Stretching their limits as the wind carries them in their race. “Feel the speed under my wings!”
ARTS AND CULTURAL CLUB
1. Brass Band
Music is in the air, students practicing in different corners in the hallway. What a magnificent sight! Sound of music touches everyone’s heart.
2. Art and Craft
Each students have their unique sense and feel for art, creativity fills the room. A dragon picture so real, I had to touch it, wondering if it will pop out of the painting!
An amazing club, giving students real hands on. I love hearing announcements over the broadcast anytime of the day. It brings the whole school together as a family, as a team.
4. Tea Ceremony and Flower Arrangements
The art of tea ceremony, called chanoyu(茶の湯）or sado(茶道）in Japanese is appreciated by many around the world. Zen Buddihism was a primary influence in the development of the Japanese tea ceremony.
Ikebana is the Japanese art of flower arrangement, also known as Kado. Giving life to flower, it allows self -expression.
Students practicing tea ceremony and flower arrangements look so serene and beautiful.
The spirit of giving and helping others is a bigger course in life. Students joining volunteer club have a big heart and lovely smile.
The greatest thing about East Junior High School is “No kids Get Left Behind”. After school, students who needs extra help receives attention and guidance from teachers, sitting outside the teacher’s room, a hallway filled with tables and chairs. I see hopes and dreams, to uncover hidden talents. “I don’t know.” is a powerful tool to learning, stretching ourselves to discovering knowledge and wisdom.
