Saturday - Rumoi HS School Festival Day 1

Rumoi High School 7/9/2022

It's a beautiful sunny weekend. However, I will report to work today because Rumoi High School is celebrating its 2-day Rumoi High School Festival.

Most of the clubs have rooms that they transform into booths. I stayed with my English Chat Club. Our club chose the theme of Harry Potter for this year. I helped them by setting up and managing the beer pong quiz. It was fun seeing my students play and answer questions about the Philippines. We wrapped up the first day at 3:30PM and cleaned the classroom we used before going home.

My day didn't end there though. That evening, I headed out to Joshua's house for the farewell party for Abi and Guy. I was too busy bonding with the ALTs that's why I wasn't able to take pictures. 😭

Our party ended at around 11PM. I got home 15 minutes later officially ending my 250th day here in Japan

It was fun watching my students (and co-teachers) from different levels dance their hearts out. I also enjoyed watching the pre-dance skits which are mostly really funny.

Overall, this is the first time that I get to experience a school festival in Japan. It will surely be one for the books.
