Filed under: - sgh-admin @ 13:26

   In Mr. Heiwa Mukou’s class, one of our 1st-year-research-program classes, the students are doing research on “how to utilize scientific public facilities and its problems”. This week, the class members visited Tobe Zoological Park, and received a lecture from its staff about the roles it plays and some of the problems facing the zoo. The students are going to continue their research on the roles such facilities as museums and zoos play in the society, and on how to effectively utilize them and its problems through fieldwork and other hands-on experiences.

For Better Understanding of Down syndrome

Filed under: - sgh-admin @ 14:30

   On October 15th, the 2nd-year students of Mr. Taro Nagatomo’s research class had a wonderful time with a boy with Down syndrome and his mother. He showed interests in various things and gave them a try. His positive attitudes toward anything made us smile, and we were greatly encouraged by his active nature. His mother said, “Our children cannot live in peace unless there is no war or conflicts in the world.” We were strongly moved by her words, and felt that we need to create a society where everyone can live their life in peace. We would like to play a part in realizing such a wonderful society.

Filed under: - sgh-admin @ 14:24

   In Mr. Hiroki Ooue’s class, one of our 1st-year-research-program classes, the students are doing research on “technology of using water and sociality”. This week, they went out on a field work and did a little research on familiar technology, cultures, histories, arts, and other things related to water. From the next class, they are planned to deepen their knowledge about how human beings have developed such technology, how water has affected human beings, and in what way the rules about water have been created.

   On October 13th, an English Speech Contest was held at Takamatsu University. High school students in Kagawa and from nearby prefectures took part, including four 1st-year students, Maho Ichiyanagi and Tamane Maruoka in the speech category and Sana Ikecuhi and Fumika Inaba in the recitation category, from our school. They all practiced their speeches again and again, which enabled them to feel confident on the contest day. All their speeches were far better than when they practiced, and, as a result, Miss Maruoka won first prize in the speech category and Miss Inaba won second prize in the recitation category. Congratulations!

   On October 6th, our SGH club held the 4th International Day event. We invited three guests, Andrea from Romania, May from Myanmar, and Von from the Philippines. They are exchange students at Ehime University. The event started with our school introduction by SGH club students, and then the guests introduced each of their countries. After the introductions, the classroom was divided into 6 areas, each of which represented one piece of typical Japanese culture, such as Japanese literature, old toys, quiz, and others.
   International Day is an event where you can learn about other countries and can enjoy speaking English. Please come and join us!

Letter from Hawaii

Filed under: - sgh-admin @ 13:02

   We received an e-mail from our 1st-year student, Mr. Sugimoto, who is staying in Honolulu.
   “Hello, everyone. I am now in Honolulu, Hawaii. I am a member of this year’s Ehime-Hawaii High School Exchange Program. We first visited the Ehime-maru Memorial at Kakaako Waterfront Park. In front of the cenotaph, we heard from Mr. Earl Okawa what happened in 2001 to Ehime-maru training fishing vessel of Uwajima Fisheries High School. Mr. Okawa is president of America-Japan Society of Hawaii. Then, we went to “Honolulu Hale” (Honolulu City Hall) to meet with the city mayor.
   One of the big events of this program is a home stay. A boy next to me in the photo of Honolulu Tower is Zackly, my host brother. My host family kindly welcomed me, having a home party to serve me a big BBQ steak!
   We participated in “Century Ride”, a bicycle race, as part of our international communication activities. I saw a beautiful double rainbow over a beach on the morning of “Century Ride” day. I also had a chance to climb Diamond Head.
   I still have a lot to do here in Honolulu, so I want to experience as much as I can and grow more as a global-minded person before I get back to Ehime!”
