Wakaba Enters Elementary School

---Congratulations to the First Graders!---

Wakaba had her Welcome Ceremony last week and most schools in Japan holds special ceremony for first graders. First graders wear formal suits, pants type suits for the boys and frilly sunday dresses for the girls ( usually used only once ) and some of the parents match the color of their formal wear with the spring season so it is usually in bright color formal suits. Wakaba was excited to wear her new formal suit to go with the solemn ceremony and of course her new randoseru( backpack ) Randoseru is a big deal in Japan and it is guaranteed to last the whole six years in elementary! No wonder it's so pricey! We went there ahead of time so we can take a lot of photos with the sakura ( cherry blossom trees ) but unfortunately, it hasn't bloomed yet. It was disappointing but we still managed to take a lot of photos on her Welcome Ceremony at Elementary School. We had a quick tour of the classroom ( there are 31 students in the class )and Wakaba was happy coz one of her classmate was her classmate on her former school in kindergarten! The new students parade into the gymnasium, speeches are made and each students was formally introduced then we got to see some performances of other students, too and heard the school song then we had a group pictures after. And oh, PTA members were also selected that time.

---Pika pika no ichinensei ( the so-called 'bright and shiny first grader'! )

---Shoe rack ( with Wakaba's name on )--at Japan school, you have to take off your shoes and wear your own room shoes when entering the classroom. ---
---A quick tour of the classroom------Wakaba sitting on her desk------The Randoseru------Wakaba loves her Daddy so much!------The new first graders------At the Ceremony Hall------The first graders parade at the gymnasium------After Wakaba's Welcome Ceremony------Haruka------Heading home, her randoseru looks heavy but it's still empty---

To all my friends who extended their greetings to Wakaba, Haruka and to my family, and to all those who kept on dropping by even if I can't return the visits, A BIG THANK YOU!! I can't find time to blog or blog hop as for now.Wakaba and Haruka goes into different school now and I have to attend separate time for other functions at school and PTA meetings. When I have the time, I'll be surely be here for a visit to your respective sites. Again, thank you for your time of visiting and for leaving your precious comments here at Kizuna. God bless!

Nakakabilib talaga ang education dito sa Japan.. Bongga talaga lalo na kapag First day of school, as in winewelcome talaga kaya naman siguro excited mga kids kahit first timers.. natsukashii talaga, naalala ko nung first day ng lil brother ko sa elementary school, parang kelan lang yun =(

Nakaka-shock din ang price ng mga bags nila, no wonder ayaw ako bilhin ni Mommy nun (elem pa ko), super mahala kasi lol..

PArang okashi talaga weather ngayon, maulan, maaraw at ngayon naman parang winter =( kainis talaga.. kaya naman ang tagal magbloom ng sakura dyan, sabi ni hubby, mas malamig daw ngayon dyan kaya mag ingat kayo.. sana maging atakai na at para makapag enjoy na ng lubusan...
