学校 Modern high school students who are required to make use of information and communication technology.

It's been about two weeks since the tablets for students were given.
Students came to use tablets more often.

This is an English class for third graders.
After solving the problem, students send answers to the teacher.
Then they share their answers.
When I point the camera at the students, they can immediately take various different poses.
That's great苦笑い


Whether you go to college or get a job, computers, tablets, and the Internet are making their way into schools and businesses in many places today.
It is the time that we're ashamed to say, "I'm a digital native!" just by watching YouTube.
We make use of our tablets to contact with teachers or students and to record study hours and daily temperatures.
Let's get used to "New Habits" soon!

学校 Westernized!

There are "key duty" teachers.

They are in charge of unlocking and locking the entrances and exits of the school buildings in the morning and evening by turns.

In the evening, the teacher tells the remaining students to lock the classroom and urge them to leave school on the air.

From today, announcements in English are also made irregularly after announcements in Japanese


This is the first time. Ms. Yano made a fluent announcement.
I am thinking about having students take care of it someday?!

注意 Urgent notice and request from Ehime Prefecture

The big holidays will be over and school will resume tomorrow.

However, there have been several confirmed cases of infection due to people bringing the virus home from outside the prefecture during the holidays.

We cannot deny the possibility that the virus has spread to a certain extent in the prefecture, as many people have been coming and going.

In addition, since teachers and classmates cannot keep track of each other's activities during the holidays, there is a risk that the viruses may spread further inside and outside the school when school activities resume.

Therefore, from tomorrow, please make sure that you do not come to school if you have any symptoms.


If you have symptoms, please do not force yourself to go to school, avoid contact with others, and be sure to see a doctor.


In some cases, after symptoms improve quickly, symptoms and positive reactions appear again after having contact with others at school. 


If you had any symptoms during the holidays, please see a doctor just in case, even if your symptoms are better now.


We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.

Thank you.

学校 The new student gets lost in school.

It is warm recently.
I think it is T-shirt seasons, but cold weather will come again in the Golden Week.

There was a ladybug in the crossing corridor.
Which class do you belong to ?


I asked, "where you are going?", but he seemed a quiet student and didn't reply.
To the First school building will be a very long way.
You must not be late for the next class!

学校 Tablets for 2nd. and 3rd. graders

Second and third grade students got a PC after first grade students.

It's good to help each other.

We need ICT now. We study hard to use information technology.

First graders are beginning to use their tablets more often.

The teachers are also working hard to teach better.

Third graders translating this article, Good luck!


(Ibuki, Sota, Misaki, Yuka)

学校 Let's be a day trader!?

This is the "Politics and Economics" class for the 3rd graders.

Students are looking at the chart and thinking.

Actually,they are looking at the stock prices before and after the COVID-19 pandemic.

Students compare them, think about the reasons for the rise and fall of stock prices and are expecting what to buy in the future.


Adults don't even know about futures trading.

If you study hard now, you may become a leading trader in Japan in the future?!

学校 The freshmen’s workshop

The new student's workshop was held.

In the first and second periods, they listened to notices told by each sections.

They are very important. Don't forget them!

In the 3rd. and 4th. periods, freshmen did the long-awaited thing.

It was to initialize their tablets!

There are many difficult operations. They may get confused, but "Get used to it!"

The teachers were busy, too.

Tablets will be sent to 2nd. and 3rd. graders next week. Look forward to them! (They're for studying.)


(Otoha, Naruki, Maria, Noa)

学校 Let’s get to know about school!

The article was late.

Freshmen were guided to various places in the school on Monday.

They were divided into each class and guided to a lot of places.

By the teacher of the career section  taught them how to use the career reference room and self-study room.

Let's use it and realize your future!

Making friends has made school life more enjoyable.

But don't forget that you're beginners and you should stay focusing on studying!

学校 Think, Try and Confirm

Thursday 5th. and 6th. are the third graders' elective classes. 

This is "Biological Quest".

This is the first class to observe trees.

What do you think they're gonna do to see trees?

Do you know how one tree changes through the year?

Do you know about the detail of leaves and stems?

They observe trees regularly though the year, and we're going to put together the results of observation.

Many groups chose cherry blossoms to observe. 

I felt they are Niihama East Highschool Students.
