On Sunday September 28th, 2008 three Smith’s Schools held a Bowling and Karaoke Party at Rokko Bowl and Cote D’ Azur in Kobe. It was attended by 18 students, teachers, friends and family members.
Students and teachers from three Kansai schools attended. Tsukaguchi, Fuse and Okamoto schools were represented. Starting with bowling the group played two games and the winner was given a prize. The Karaoke party started immediately after the bowling and again the group voted to give one of the participants a prize. It was an easy vote since one of the students simply blew everyone away with her dynamic wide-ranging voice. Mai can really belt out a tune and can sing both the male and female parts in a duet. Wow!
Again, this kind of fun event is just an example of how much more fun it can be to belong to a Smith’s School and study English with teachers who really care about their students’ progress. We try to give our students many opportunities to use English outside the classroom. At the same time, we teacher-owners also have a lot of fun.
