Lesson in Decision Making

Lesson in Decision Making & Fun at the Ballot Box.



​The Privilege of The Vote.


It's been quite a week so far for the second year students here in Meishu. As they move closer to becoming the third grade students, and elder statesmen and women of the student population, they were given lessons in civic duties that will be expected of them in years to come as well as the opportunity to learn about all of the options that will be available to them once the graduate from secondary education here.

Yes, that was a long sentence. In simple terms, the students learned about a) Voting and b) Third-Level education options.

On Tuesday, the students gathered for the third and fourth periods to learn about their citizens right to vote in elections once they are 18. First, a number of the younger teachers gave mini-lectures on the value of the vote before civil servants from the local government gave a detailed seminar on voting values, patterns, and purposes.

Mr. Chiraarashi gave an impressive and fun-filled presentation.
It is to be hoped that the students grasped the importance and privilege which there is in having a vote.

In the second major event of the week, the students all took a trip this morning to the local civic centre where there were free to attend mini seminars about what different universities, specialist schools and companies have to offer them if they choose to attend those institutions after finishing school.

​Crossing The Road To Enlightenment.


For many, it was a chance to enjoy a stroll with friends in the bright spring sun but for all it was a chance to think seriously about what role they want to play in Japanese society in the future; and all under the roof of the ever impressive Hitachi Civic Centre.

A second hope is that the students learned something at this event about themselves, and that it helps them to focus their attentions in the coming academic year so that they can achieve their dreams. The micro-seminars were designed to give students maximum opportunity to learn more about things they may want to do in the future.

Up until now, most students have held - at least partially - the view that the only work to be done in school is by teachers. Maybe after today, they will all appreciate that school is a place of work and achievement for all the people in it - both teachers and students.


Learning About The Work Environment.
