September News Update – Eiken, Essay Contest, Speech Contest and Debate Workshop
Firstly, at the start of the month, the results of the Eiken tests which were held in August were announced. Among the many students who passed, two students from our schools achieved a pass in the Pre-First grade, the second highest level of the Eiken test. Congratulations to all the students that worked so hard on their English to achieve such great results.
On Saturday 19th September, three students from Shizuoka Eiwa took part in the Shizuoka Prefecture Central English Speech Contest. In total, twenty students from schools in central Shizuoka took part. The level of the speeches was very high this year and the students all did their best. One student for our school was awarded the third-place prize and will progress to the Prefectural Contest that will be held in October. I hope that all of the students enjoyed the contest as much as I did.
As you can see, the students at Eiwa are all working very hard to improve their English and are taking the chance to express themselves in many different ways. I hope that the other students at the school can follow their example and take part in even more events in the future.
