Elementary Assembly

On Friday 5th February we held the first Assembly of the year that was planned and presented completely by students!  The House Captains started with their explanation of how the House Points will work and went on to explain that each house will organise one event each this year to allow everyone to compete for some points.  Each event will see a winning house, a runner up, a third and a fourth place.  4 points will be awarded to the winning house; 3 to the runner up; 2 to the third place and 1 for the fourth place house.  After the House picnic the current standings are:

Chokai - 4 points
Asama - 3 points
Iwaki - 2 points
Ontake - 1 point

The first House event will be held this Thursday 11th February and is being organised by the Asama House Captains.  Students are encouraged to wear their pyjamas and crazy hair to school (students should come to school wearing their uniforms and change into their pyjamas once here).  Points will be awarded for hair and PJs in the following categories:

  • The most unique
  • The most creative
  • The funniest
  • The most colourful 
  • The cutest 
Points will also be available on the other 3 House events organised by House Captains, As well as the Elementary Sports Day. 

After our House Captains, it was Ms Ingrid's Chinese Class' turn to present and tell us all about the Chinese New Year celebrations taking place this week around the world and in Tokyo.  The girls told us the story about how the animals of the Chinese Zodiac were chosen, talked about the traditions of CNY and some characteristics of the Monkey, since we are about to enter the year of the Monkey. All ES students were then surprised when Ms Ingrid and her class handed out some jiaozi for everybody - some with hidden coins for good luck!  Gong Xi Fa Cai!
