Jumonji Festival, 2017 (JHS 1st Grade)
Last weekend Jumonji hosted its yearly school festival. It was quite similar to festivals at other private schools, with some rooms displaying students’ work and other rooms dedicated to food and games. Junior high 1st grade had two classrooms to display their class projects in, and English had half of one of those rooms. Throughout summer vacation and early September students wrote about someone. Most students chose people they like or admire, but some also wrote about their favourite anime character or their pet. They then made a poster with pictures of the person they wrote about and we posted those for display. I thought they were very interesting and I was surprised at some of the girls’ English writing ability. They should all be very proud of a job well done!
