Renaissance Men for Others
Japanese has the expression 文武両道 to describe people that are both good academically and at sport. In English, there is no exact translation, but we use a similar term “Renaissance Man” (ルネサンス男) to describe someone that has a balanced set of skills.
This term, the midterm test period covers a weekend being yesterday, today, Monday and Tuesday, so our boys have been studying hard.
However, study isn’t the only thing and since the COVID-19 Quasi-Emergency Measures were lifted, we have also been encouraging our boys to take small breaks from study to go outside in the sunshine.
In addition, the junior high school soccer team has a match tomorrow, so they were getting some practice in after their morning tests.
We wish them the best of luck, along with all our students on their last two test days next week.
