And the winner is?…

The windows had no chance blocking against the glee filled shrills and nervous laughter that found it’s way into the teachers office this bright sunny morning. Young newly graduated jr. high school students flooded the school grounds to check if their exam number was posted among the accepted.

My school was not the only one prone to bouts of laughter and toothy grins. High Schools all over Yamaguchi and other prefectures also posted their entrance exam results.

ALTs and teachers alike crowded near windows, on balconies, and even walked among the crowd to watch the happy scene unfold. Student clubs also stood by to welcome the young new faces into their world.

Newly admitted first years, welcome to a new chapter in your life. Welcome to high school.
