Keeping with yesterday’s theme, here are some extra photos from the festival itself. Special thanks our Showa Soran Bushi performers and to the Wellesley College Taiko Group for being involved.
Here are some additional photos of Showa Boston’s annual festival, held last month. Our students worked hard to make the event a success, but these pictures show that they had some fun as well!
Each fall semester Showa Boston works with area colleges on an intercultural exchanges opportunity called CCP, or College Connection Program. 3 Showa students are matched with an American university student for a series of visits focusing on cultural exchange and learning with their peers.
On our October 15th “Kickoff Day” event, 40 American college students (College Connectors) were matched with 119 Showa students.
Number of American College Connectors by school:
- Mass. Art: 17
- Wentworth: 11
- Emmanuel College: 4
- Simmons: 3
- Mt. Ida (since 2014): 2
- Boston College (since 2016): 1
- Mass. Pharmacy: 1
- Newbury (since 2015): 1
Showa Boston celebrated its 3rd annual summer party with approximately 70 outside guests in attendance, including language school students, students at American colleges, and participants in the Japan Exchange & Teaching Program.
Each of Showa Boston’s eight dormitory wings competed in a dodgeball competition. Congrats to Wing 7 for winning some well earned ice cream!
Happy Holidays from Showa Boston! Right now it’s an incredible 20 degrees celcius in Boston right now – so warm that some of our cherry blossoms bloomed!
This past Sunday and Monday, December 6 & 7, Showa held its annual festival. Please see the pictures below. To see photographs taken by Rus Gant, one of the teachers at Showa Boston, click here.
On Saturday, November 14, about 50 Showa students and 16 College Connectors (American college students who participate in Showa’s College Connection Program), met at Emmanuel College for a karaoke activity together. Emmanuel College kindly provided the facility, while Showa provided the DJ and equipment. Please take a look at the pictures below!
Mr. Hiroshi Motoyama, President & CEO of Mizuho Securities Co., Ltd. generously visited Showa Boston earlier this month and gave a talk to students. His presentation was titled 21世紀を生きる君たちへ, or “To Those Who Will Live The 21st Century.” This talk was a fantastic opportunity to hear about, not to mention ask about, the employment world that they will enter within the next few years.
Below are some pictures from the Academic Departments Tick or Treat event.
In the art room, Kathrine lead a “blind drawing” activity where students sketched without being able to look at their papers.
In the academic building, teachers dressed up and handed out candy. You can see for yourselves in the pictures below how much fun the students had!
