A letter from New York Final

Filed under: - sgh-admin @ 14:50

   Our students safely came back from New York this morning. Here is comment of each student.

   “In this NY study tour, I had a chance to visit NY office of Nikkei America Inc., and Nomura Securities Co., Ltd. During the visit, I heard about the US election, U.S. economy, and the problems within. Every topic was very interesting since it was stories from the people working in the middle of global economy, and believe it or not, I am in the place!
   Through the tour, I realized that each news topic is linked and involved with other topics and that relation occurs to the current situation. I thought it important to have interest in the world news and think how it is affecting to other news, rather than listening to Japan’s news only.”

   “The most memorable experience during this tour was the meeting with students of the Passaic Valley High School. I couldn’t answer simple questions, I felt a huge language barrier. But using internet as a translator, I was able to communicate with them and it was very meaningful for me.
   Also, the visit to the New York Stock Exchange was memorable, since it was a place I can only see in the TV show. I will never forget the moment standing in the NYSE hearing the closing bell.”

   “For me, the most impressive visit was a tour in the United Nations. Since I am interested in working as an international servant, visiting United Nations was a lot more emotional than just learning at school. I was impressed with the depth of relationship between each country, which reminded me of the world so big.
   While visiting NY office of Mitsubishi Corporation, we had a chance to hear from our alumna, which was very lucky. Talking about local story in such a global place was weird, but I realized the greatness of Matsuyama Higashi High School by looking at our alumna working globally.
At last, I would like to thank all who accompanied, it was with your help we could spend a wonderful time. Thank you very much. ”

A letter from New York No3

Filed under: - sgh-admin @ 13:26

   “On the 3rd day of our study trip, we visited NY office of Nomura Securities Co.,Ltd. We were able to understand that Nomura Securities has been deeply involved with Japan and World economics, from what we saw in the trading center and the explanation of America’s economics. We also visited the New York Stock Exchange, and see the international economics itself.
   4th day of our study trip started with United Nations. There was the chamber where Miss Malala Yousafzai had made the speech and some chamber was having a meeting, which made us to think more carefully about education and conflicts. We also visited Passaic Valley High School, and had fun having conversation with students, since they speak about economics and finances so lively.
   I think this study tour became very meaningful, because we all grab the message of “try on Japanese youth!” (which was written in the stock league report) and grow up one step further. We thank Nikkei Inc., Nomura Holdings Inc., the companies we visited, and all who was involved in this tour.”

A letter from New York No2

Filed under: - sgh-admin @ 13:23

   “Today, in the midmorning, we visited the NY office of Mitsubishi Corporation to hear about “B2B” and international strategy. Surprisingly, we also had a chance to speak with our alumna. We next visited NY office of Nikkei America Inc., the North America’s editorial headquarter of Nikkei Inc., in the afternoon. We listened to an interesting story about the latest news. Thankfully, they had answered our questions even longer than planned.
   In this study tour, members of Nikkei Inc. and Nomura Holdings Inc. were along with us. Each person’s words was very important and interesting, which leads us to a new world. With appreciation in our heart, we will learn a lot tomorrow too!”

Research presentation has ended

Filed under: - sgh-admin @ 13:06

   Yesterday, we had Research Presentation at our school’s Gymnasium.
   The presentations done at the stage of Gymnasium was all in English, which must be very challenging for the presenters. I think the presenters did well, and also other students listened well, because there were many good questions asked.
   In the poster session, since both 1st grade and 2nd grade was looking around, the presentation space was filled with people. I heard many good debates and conversations going on in many places, not only from the students but other participants.

   We appreciate every participant, especially those who came from far places in Japan.
