School Festival 2016 / ２０１６年度学園祭
In October, we had school festival. Luckily the weather was pretty good. Thursday was actually quite hot. I really like the atmosphere of the preparation day. Everyone is working hard to transform the school into something fantastical. This year's theme was Planet. I really liked the decorations.
ESS, the English club, performed a play as usual. This year the students wrote an original script for a detective story based on the characters of Lupin and Conan. The story is set at an auction. A 100-karat diamond is stolen and Lupin and Conan, and their friends are involved. In the middle of the play, during the auction scene, there was a musical. It was the entertainment during the auction. Ms. Shimada, an 11th grade student, choreographed the dance. Then she and 5 others danced together, and sang an English song. It was from the movie Hairspray. It was really great.
I was very impressed with he performance this year. I thought the students all did very well, especially with regards to their facial expressions and the ad-libs they did. It was fun to watch them on stage. I hope they enjoyed themselves and are now motivated to work harder than before.
