Sports Day

Sports Day at a Junior HS in Japan is a day where the students break into teams and compete for a trophy and prizes. There are a series of races and tasks to test their endurance, strength and ability to work as a team. There are also cheerleading and dance competitions.

After the Olympic like activities of the morning, and after lunch, the students retake the field. The girls do various dances and the guys perform various feats of strength.

I’m so proud of my kids. They worked very hard, rehearsing for days, coming to school early and staying late.

Here are some examples of the results:

The girls performed a popular folk dance known as the Soran bushi dance:

And the boys did some human tower building (don’t know what its called):

Aren’t they just awesome?

I love em

    Great performance from the girls and boys. You can tell they really worked hard. I bet you had a big kool aid smile on your face while watching them. They seem to be hard working kids.

Words I love…

Everybody is a star
I can feel it when you shine on me
I love you for who you are
Not the one you feel you need to be
Ever catch a falling star
Ain't no stopping 'til it's in the ground
Everybody is a star
One big circle going round and round
