Greetings at the end of the 2016 school year
Following the 41st graduation ceremony on March 16 and the closing ceremony for the three- and four-year-old student classes on the 17th, the kindergarten is glad to announce that all the events of the 2016 school year came to an end with no incidents. The teachers and staff would like to sincerely thank the parents for their kind support.
Via the Soka Kindergarten survey that was conducted in the third term, we received a lot of warm encouraging words and very helpful opinions for the kindergarten's development. The kindergarten is deeply grateful to all the parents that cooperated with the survey. In the meantime, all teachers and staff underwent a self-assessment regarding their efforts. The kindergarten also received opinions from other concerned individuals, including representatives from Soyokai, Aien Kai (the parents' association), and Hojukai. We will utilize these opinions and the parents' feedback in the third-party assessment process.
In commemoration of graduation, 101 graduating students (the 41st student cohort to graduate) joined their homeroom teachers to create a "handmade relief of the kindergarten song," which is now on display at the Prince and Princess Hall. In addition, the backdrop on the stage of the Prince and Princess Hall is an artistic piece, titled "Get off here with our dream on board." This was created through major effort by the homeroom teachers and vice-homeroom teachers of the three- and four-year-old classes and other teachers, so as to boost the mood for celebration for the departure of the 41st student cohort to graduate.
The next school year marks the 42nd anniversary of the kindergarten and the 50th anniversary of Soka Gakuen. All teachers and staff will remain committed to offering Soka's unique form of smile-filled education. With big smiles on our faces, we look forward to seeing everyone at the parent-child school day on April 5, the first-term opening ceremony on the 7th, and the entrance ceremony on the 8th.
