Letter from Kunashiri Island

Filed under: - sgh-admin @ 11:55

    As I noted at August 19th, I visited Kunashiri Island, northern island of Japan, the place of Northern territory problem between Russia and Japan. It was a pity that we had to shorten the schedule because of Typhoon, but even with the short time, it was very meaningful to have communication with the Russian people living in Kunashiri Island. Home visit was canceled, which I was most looking forward to, but it was a good experience to play with the Russian children through sports. Since Russian language is different from English, I couldn’t read a word, but with smile and gestures, I was able to get friendly together.
   To solve the Northern territory problem, I think to understand each other and persistent dialogue is needed. Hope it gets to an acceptable result for both countries, as soon as possible.

Participating at Japan Future Leaders School

Filed under: - sgh-admin @ 13:26

   One of our students participated at the Japan Future Leaders School from July 24th to August 6th, in Fukuoka Prefecture. Below are words from the student.
   “During this 2 weeks school, we heard from many teachers including Mr. Mahathir bin Mohamad, who was a former president of Malaysia. We also experienced a Miso soup contest, paint decorating of Arita-yaki, a traditional Japanese pottery, and others. Every day I was amazed and impressed.
   The most impressive activity was “Asia High School Summit (AHS)”. In this AHS, we (194 students) separated into 14 groups, and each group needed to discuss about problems and its solution of the given theme. My group’s theme was “information”. We discussed so many times before the last presentation. During the discussion, we sometimes had opposite opinions which led to conflict and the group seemed to depart, I wanted to gave up this activity. But since we all worked together in patience, and never give up until the end, we were able to win the top prize at the presentation!
   Through this school I was able to have a special unforgettable memory and friends. After this school, we cannot get together so easily since students are from all around Japan, even from Asia overseas. Even though, they all are special friends, I will move toward my dream believing we can meet again in the future beyond our dreams. I am happy I was able to participate in this Japan Future Leaders School.”

We arrived at 7:40, spend time looking around the school under the guide of Mr. Agcaoili. Then we separated into two groups and joined the class of the same grade together. One group joined the class of Social Studies, Science, Health, and English, the other was Health, Mathematics, English, and Science. Besides the classes, we also had a chance to have meeting with Professor San Jose, the school principal, and Professor Bojo, the vice principal, and heard about school outline and other things.

   There is only few days left for my visit in England. I can’t believe how fast the days go by! I had finished learning about ESD in Schumacher College, and now I am learning about many of the efforts done in this Totnes country, known as a birthplace of transition town. All the classes in Schumacher College were with the students of age 20 to 30, or even older, since this college is a graduate school, so the discussion was deeper than ever I experienced. On holiday, I also visited London for sightseeing.

   August 10th Wednesday was rainy again, in here at Manila. Today we were able to visit Honda Philippine, through the influence of BEET Philippine. The factory is located about one and half hours away from Manila, inside a industrial complex. We were welcomed by the CEO, Mr. Mihara, and other workers. We first gathered in the conference room to hear about outline of Honda Philippine, and had some question and answer time. Thankfully, the staff of Honda Philippine kindly and neatly answered to our students’ question. Leaving the conference room, we next entered inside the factory. We heard a great Japanese explanation from local staff, about how to build a bike. Then our students tried riding on the jeepney, share ride vehicle of Philippine, and tricycle. Students also had a chance to chat with staff members during Lunch at the cafeteria. Thank you to all the staff members who were involved, and thank you for taking picture with us!

   We landed at Takamatsu Air Port, after looking the Matsuyama City down from the airplane. So quick the 5 days has passed.
   7 students first looked nervous and didn’t talked much, but riding on the pink bus, visiting and experience together, they seemed to have a sense of unity in the end. Students were saying they want to visit Taiwan again, and also want to learn more!
   We hope the students not to forget to appreciate parents and people who helped this field work, and grow up as a global leader who can help others.

   This is the last day to spend in Hawaii, so we took time together with Uwajima Minami Secondary School students for summarizing the study tour.
   As a first activity, we made groups of 5 to share each comments about their 2 weeks of stay in Hawaii. Comments included what you learned, what impressed you the most, how you changed, and others. At last, the representative of each group shared group’s comments to others.
   In the next activity, Uwajima Minami students introduced the places they visited other than the class in English. They did well, as well as our students through asking questions. Our school students also made presentation about Hawaii, its language, famous tourism spots, and Hawaii University including researched information from the internet. Every presentation was very simple with good combination of researched information and their own experiences. It must be very informative for other students too.
   In the end, we took pictures at the roof terrace where we can see the Diamond Head. The students face shows no regret, full of satisfaction!
