    thoughts on the sports/culture festivals

      Hello Seiun!

      Now that the sports and culture festivals are over, I’d like to thank you all for your hard work, and for inviting me to watch and participate! We don’t have anything similar in Canada, so it was an amazing experience for me. I was very impressed by your hard work and enthusiasm, and really enjoyed every minute of the weekend. OK, I enjoyed everything except when I tripped in the relay race: sorry, basketball team! But thanks for inviting me to join you.








      During the sports festival, I really enjoyed the races, and I loved events like “Get the Rope,” “Mukade race,” and “Typhoon race,” because we don’t have them in Canada. We do have the 100m, 800m, 1500m, and relay races, but usually we have a special “Track and Field day” where everyone participates in races and other events like the high jump, triple jump, long jump, and shot put. All of the dances and cheers at Canadian high schools are performed by a small group of students called cheerleaders, while the rest of the students watch and cheer along. We also never have marches, except at military high schools, so I’m looking forward to sending pictures to my family and friends so that they can see how much school spirit you all have!









      And even though I don’t speak very much Japanese, and so couldn’t understand many of the performances during the culture festival, I still had a lot of fun! You all did a fantastic job performing and organizing the festival. In Canada, we have drama club and brass band and chorus, but usually they have performances on separate nights, maybe once every two or three months. Not every student participates, either; probably only about ten percent of the school’s students are in drama, brass band, or chorus, so many students never get a chance to be part of cultural events, except as audience members.

      For next year, my goal is to know enough Japanese to understand the plays and songs. But for now, I’ll just say: good job everyone, and thanks for the awesome experience!
