3月17日土曜日、春の暖かな日差しの中、

ここFunShine Academyの卒園式が行われました

小学校への進学を楽しみにしている子ども達は、

朝から少し気持ちが高鳴っているのもありニコニコの笑顔で登園してきました

この素敵な笑顔をもう毎日見ることができないのは、私達としてやはりさみしいですね😢

そして、一足先に卒園したお友達も会いにきてくれました💕

卒園児が制服から、卒園式のユニフォームに着替えていよいよ入場です

さっきまでお友達と冗談を言い合っていたとは思えない、

キリッとした顔つきで入場しました

在園児のお友達は、憧れのかっこいい卒園児のお友達を送り出すために

みんなで気持ちを合わせて、送辞を言いました

送る歌「ずっとともだち」を、

英語バージョン「Every body friends」で歌い切りました♪

長い時間、最後までよく頑張りましたね!!

卒園児の答辞では、英語と日本語で行いました

歌「1年生になったら」を、

英語バージョン「When I go to Elementary school」で歌いました。

1年生になるという希望がいっぱい込められた歌を元気に歌えましたね🎒

卒園証書授与では自分の将来の夢を、保護者の方に感謝のメッセージを発表しました

この日のために、毎日毎日練習してきた成果を充分に発揮することができましたね

とても立派な姿に、感動しました

また、保護者の方のからお子様を想う気持ち、

そしてFunShineAcademyを想う気持ちの

お言葉を頂いてさらに素敵な卒園式になりました

卒園してしまうのはさみしいですが、小学校での成長が楽しみです

職員一同、今後も子ども達の健やかな成長を見守っていきたいと思います

そつえんじの おともだち へ

いつまでも じぶんをしんじて いろいろなことに ちゃれんじして

がんばってくださいね。

そして かぞくや おともだちを たいせつにしてね

せんせいたちは ずっとずっと みんながだいすきだよ😄

The day of graduation for our two beloved K3 students came on March 17th. It was really hard to believe that this time would come so quickly. It feels like we have just begun the 2017-2018 class a short moment ago! Time runs really fast when we are enjoying it.

The boys practiced really hard singing songs and presenting speeches all month for this very special and important day! They felt a little nervous about the ceremony as they really wanted to be perfect for their precious families.

As expected from the K3 students, Ryuki and Sion did their best and showed everyone how much they grew up over the period of three years in FunShine Academy Kinder Class.

We remember them as two little boys who, like every child starting their kindergartener life, needed a lot of guidance in their studies, friendships and school routines.

On the day of the Graduation Ceremony we presented kindergarten diplomas to two ☆big, strong and incredibly reliable boys.☆
☆The boys that always helped others and did their best at school.☆
☆The boys that made their parents and teachers proud so many times!☆
☆The boys that decided that they want to be a great pianist and paleontologist instead of repeating almost all boys’ dreams of becoming a sportsman.☆

 

☆The boys that sang goodbye to our kindergarten in both English and Japanese.☆
☆The boys that could handle sitting and standing for a long time, listening to the grown-up speeches of the grown-ups.☆
☆The boys who never said: “I don’t want to do this. It’s boring.”☆

There were so many bittersweet tears of sadness mixed with joy.

The children looked at their teachers and parents crying, with a look of confusion in their eyes;
“Why are the teachers crying? Why is my mommy and daddy crying? They don’t look hurt and they didn’t get into a fight with anyone. I don’t understand it.”

“We are crying because we can’t believe how fast you have grown up. We are crying because, even though we are happy for your graduation, it is really difficult to let you go,” 
is probably the best answer. But, this moment is about the children, not about the adults and their feelings. So, we keep quiet and accept these feelings.

It is very hard to say goodbye to someone we love and cherish. We learn it as we grow up. But, we also know that both of the boys are ready to start their education on the new level; elementary school. Both of them look forward to becoming first graders, learning new things and meeting new friends and teachers.

Dear Strawberry boys- we made so many wonderful memories together! Please, keep them in your heart and remember that, whenever you miss your friends and teachers from the kindergarten, you can come to play with us! We will be waiting for you!

It is not a “farewell”. It is a “see you later!”

FunShine Academy loves you!
