On April 8, 2011, 139 students come to school to begin the year. This day, usually one of happiness and high expectations, is a sad year because of Tohoku quake.
|Students march into the hall. Listen to the entrance song.||The ceremony begins with a one minute prayer; silent tribute to the Tohoku quake's dead .|
|Listen to the group play the country song...||...and play and sing the school song.|
|Teachers all welcome students to the start of the new year.||Students go to their first class; parents are invited to join them on this day.|
