Attending at English Speech Contest

Filed under: - sgh-admin @ 14:13

   On October 14th, an English Speech Contest was held at Takamatsu University. High school students in Kagawa and from nearby prefectures took part, including four 2nd-year students from our school. In the Speech section, Ms Sumida, who spoke about how to make our society better for LGBTs, won second prize, and Ms Watanabe, who talked about her experience on her language study tour in Hawaii, won an outstanding performance award. In the Recitation section, Ms Inaba, who recited a speech of Miss Malala Yousafzai, won first prize!
   All the four students made far better performances at the contest than at the practice, including Mr. Mitsuda, whose performance was so passionate and emotional that our ALT Teyha-sensei was moved to tears!

Letter from Hawaii No3

   We received an email from Mr. Yamada.
   “Our home-stay program ended today. I said good bye to my host family and went to high school with my host brother Yuta. Today was “Home coming day”, so each class was only 30 minutes long. The classes were so different from those in Japan; in some classes, they need to use smart phones and computers during the class! At school Yuta was very kind and helped me a lot. I was willing to speak a lot in English, it was very difficult for me to understand natural English.
Today we also visited Hawaii University. I had conversations with some intern students and some staff members in the Japan Research Center. After that we visited the Japanese Garden in the campus. Hawaii University was so big and I was amazed!
   In the end, we had time with Ehime Kenjinkai, a group of Japanese people related to Ehime prefecture. We did special performancew at the presentation, which they seemed to have enjoyed a lot.
Tomorrow we will have our main presentation event. I am a bit nervous but will do my best to express my own opinions.”

Letter from Hawaii No2

   We received an email from Miss Miyoshi.
“Today, on the second day at Hawaii, I spend all day with my host family! We went to Waikiki Beach, and then to shopping center, where we ate Loco Moco Lunch! I was surprised at its size. Everything was so huge! I was a bit at a loss since my host family couldn’t understand Japanese and I felt powerless when I couldn’t speak English well enough to make myself understood, but it was a lot of fun experiencing such things as I definitely can’t in Japan!
From tomorrow, we will join classes at local high school. I want to tell the goodness of Ehime and Japan as much as I can!”

Letter from Hawaii No1

   We received an email from Mr. Yamada, spending time in Hawaii.
   “The journey started with a 3-hour delay of our flight, but we safely landed at Hawaii. Because of the delay, we couldn’t visit Pearl Harbor and Waipahu Cultural Center, but instead we visited Ehime-maru Memorial at Kakaako Waterfront Park. At the park, we listened to the explanation about the Ehime-maru, and then gave silent prayer. We also cleaned the monument too. In the lunch time, we ate a pork bowl for the first time! In the afternoon, we met with each of our host families. I can’t wait for what’s coming up tomorrow!”

Practicing debate

Filed under: - sgh-admin @ 16:18

   Our SGH club practiced debating with several high schools on September 30th. Not only schools nearby, but those from the southern and the eastern parts of Ehime also joined us. They were divided into 8 groups and spent the whole day surrounded by English!
   Debate was very tough, and just one debate match was enough to make the students very tired. Though it was such a tough day for the students, the practice must have been very stimulating for them since there is a big debate contest coming soon. Hope they can do their best until and at the contest!
