お疲れ様 is one Japanese phrase that has no clear English translation. In some situations we may say “well done”, but in others “Thank you for~”, or even the very literal “You must be tired.”
Regardless, I’d like to say お疲れ様 to all the Gakuin boys who finished their end of year tests today.
We still have two days of class to return the tests on Monday and Wednesday next week, but the hard part is basically finished.
Since tests were finished clubs restarted and many students were practicing in the lovely weather.
I’m a coach of the JHS Mountaineering Club and we had practice today, too.
It hit 2:46 pm while we were on the mountain, so we stopped and held a minute’s silence in memory of the tragedy on this day 11 years ago.
