Influenza was raging in our school a few weeks ago. Not only students but also teachers suffered from influenza. Owing to an epidemic of influenza, one of the first year classes was sent home.

There are some simple things you can do to prevent transmission of an influenza virus, for example wash your hands and gargle. Among such ways to protect you from disease, I think it is the most important thing to keep regular hours.

I want to be always careful to get exercise, eat a good meal, and take a good rest in order to stay healthy.

Welcome to Notre Dame Seishin!
Three members of the Sisters of Notre Dame Leadership team visited our school on January 12. They gave us messages. Sister Masheti spoke to us using our principal and other Sisters, so her story was easy for us to understand.
The contents of her story is about school life: to work together with others.
Her story impressed us. That was a chance to think about our school life and our friends.

New Year’s Day

In Shogatsu, which means New Year’s Day in Japanese, Japanese people always eat “Osechi” and go to the New Year’s first visit to a shrine.

“Osechi” are special New Year’s dishes. Various kinds of beautiful dishes are set in four fired lacquer boxes. Each of the dishes has some auspicious meaning which reflects people’s several wishes, such as good health, happiness, long life and so on.

Many Japanese pay the New Year’s first visit to a shrine during the first three days of January in order to give thanks that we welcome the Happy New Year and make traditional New Year’s wishes for good health and happiness.

Therefore, “Shogatsu” is a very important day for Japanese people.
