February is usually a month that starts off bitterly cold, but gets gradually better. Unfortunately, the bug that causes influenza doesn’t see it that way. As of yesterday, 中2 students are off school for three days. They are the third grade this month to be sent home. We hope that all the boys in the other grades stay 元気!!
Things are getting busy for the 中3 boys. The Student Council Election will take place next Monday. Many of the 60K boys are running. We wish them well. Then, in March, they all go to Nagasaki for their school trip. Yesterday, the class groups worked on a sightseeing schedule for the free time there. I have only been to Nagasaki once, so I’m not very familiar with it. However, I hope the boys will enjoy their stay. It seems that there are quite a few things to see.
The Gakuin Cup group stage will be rounding up today. Mostly 高2 & 1 teams have advanced to the next stage, but 中1B is guaranteed a spot in the knockout phase thanks to their gritty performances. Good luck to all teams for the rest of the tourney.
