It was the very first Sports Day at a new location. Thanks to everyone's heartfelt understanding and support, we were able to have a great time with full of joy. Thank you so much.
Children were so motivated to perform well since everyone received them with applause and cheering.
And now, the school year is about to end. We are pleased to see how much the seedlings that were planted in the children’s minds have grown in their own shapes and sizes during the year. We also enjoy the growth of our vegetable in the gardens and the newly born bunnies.
KNI will enter the summer break for a while. Please take care, we all look forward to seeing everyone next time. With a lot of appreciation….

Thank you, Hachiga Sensei!

This is Hachiga, and I am leaving KNI after this school year.
These two years just flew by, and I am very sad to leave KNI.
As I look back on these two years, I was always surrounded by kid’s overflowing smiles. When I just saw their smiles like the sun, I was so energized.
I also appreciated the parents for kindly watching over me and giving me kind words.
After I go back to Japan, I will press on while remembering what I felt here, what I saw here, and the people I met here.
Thank you so so much!
