Yusei Yogo Visit

Yesterday, students from Yusei Yogo visited our school and we did a lot of activities together including soccer and making clay masks. During the mask activity, I helped my partner carve shapes and lines into the surface and it was interesting to see how different and unique the pieces were after everyone was done.  Interacting with them was a very meaningful experience for me as although my partner was very shy and did not talk, I was able to communicate with him and create a beautiful mask together. Also, I was very pleased and surprised as they tried to talk to me in english and the teachers were very supportive and kind. The students had disablities but it did not matter as we had a lot of fun and we were able to share great experiences together.

Winter Break Photo Journal

Over the winter break, we were given an assignment which was to take 25 photos based on different topics such as nature, pretty scenery and strong emotion. I really enjoyed the assignment as we got to share photos and memories from winter break. Everyone had unique memories and it was interesting how people had different perspectives of the topics. Sometimes, finding the right photo for the topic was difficult. For example, “Most Dreaded” was one of the most difficult topics as being in a dreadful situation does not occur often. Therefore, I used my creativity and looked at it at a different perspective. I really enjoyed it and I would like to do it again with different topics!

 

What is the Purpose of Aid Organizations?

Aid organizations are organizations that provide aid and ensure a better life for animals and humans etc. For example, UNICEF (United Nations International Children’s Education Fund) ensures that childrens’ rights are protected by helping families with serious financial issues and making sure that the children are healthy by giving out medicine and providing a clean environment. UNICEF also help children get an education by providing school equipments etc. WWF (World Wildlife Fund) is another organization that protects wildlife/ nature, help people live more sustainably and take action against climate change. As can seen above, different organizations have different missions and they help make the world a better place.
