Workshop Lets go voting!

Filed under: - sgh-admin @ 14:23

   On January 19th, we had a workshop titled “Let’s go voting!” at one of our Research program class, the class of Prof. Oshihara. This workshop, like we did last year, was done by the cooperation of Ehime Prefectural Electoral Management Committee, Ehime University, and our school.
   At the workshop, there was a presentation from students of Ehime University faculty of Education about basic information of our prefecture’s election, such as an early voting for those who cannot vote on the election day, or how to vote at where you are when people who have special reason like studying to live out of Ehime without administrative procedure (changing address on residence certificate) , or how to participate at coming-of-age ceremony, even if you changed the address on residence certificate from Matsuyama. After the presentation students challenged straw poll.
   Since last year, the voting age changed, 18 years old which means 3rd grade in high school, are now able to vote. Although the voting rate last time was so low, 45th of all 47 prefectures. As for our students, now they understand the importance of voting and hope they will spread them to other young people.

Filed under: - sgh-admin @ 10:40

   On January 15th, there was an international event called “Chikyu-jin Matsuri 2017 in Matsuyama Ehime” at Matsuyama Community Center, and students of our SGH club joined as volunteer. In this event, many sections are made to introduce other countries. Our students separated in each country, had few meetings since December to plan and prepare how to introduce the country and main event of the section.
   On the day, even with snow falling, many people including foreigners visited, which was a good chance for our students to know more about many countries and cultures. We are also glad that this event ended successful and exciting!

   Second time for Miss Watabe, she made a presentation at Shikoku High School Global Education Presentation, as a representative of Ehime prefecture. Like the first one, she told about her opinion on helping developing countries and international communication through her experience in Uganda. Gladly, she won a prize!
   We hope her to grow up as a global person, adding this experience with Uganda Field Work.

Welcoming foreign students from Ehime University

Filed under: - sgh-admin @ 11:35

   On January 9th, we welcomed Mr. David Matthews and Ms. Vanessa Fischer- Walker, both studying in Ehime University from UCLA Sacramento. We took time to introduce our school’s club activities, such as Rugby, Japanese Archery, Tennis, Handball, and Brass band. At the Japanese Archery club, club members welcomed them kindly, and took a chance for them to try the kata, structured steps of shooting arrow, which seemed to be very amazing for them. Also in Brass band club, since both were able to play saxophone, they joined the saxophone quartet in jazz, which was very heartwarming time for both club members and visitors.
   At last, we would like to thank Japanese Archery club members for their preparation, and Brass band members for sudden cooperation, and other club members who were involved. It was nice time also to see our students’ potential.
   Here are messages from the visitors.
“Thank you for showing us such a wonderful time! It was very fun getting to meet all of you. Thank you”
―― David Matthews
“Thank you for letting us observe as you practiced. Seeing you all work so hard made me miss high school, and I hope you all keep your determination as you get older.”
―― Vanessa Fischer- Walker

Volunteer for developing countries

Filed under: - sgh-admin @ 11:21

   Every month, SGH club members attend at the volunteer for developing countries hosted by NPO Asia Kids Care. On December, students joined the volunteer to pack goods to send to Uganda.
   First, there was a presentation from Mr. Barnard, who came from Uganda to Ehime University to study and research about malaria. Participants learned about the “Watoto”, a system for gather and raise orphans like a family.
   In this volunteer, many people, adults, university students and oversea students, attend, which inspires our students in a good way. So we are planning to keep on joining this volunteer. And more over, we would like to expand what we learned and felt toward people around us.

Pictures coming soon. . . . .
