From St. Hilda’s (Girls)

We had a beautiful day again today. It was shiny and hot just like in summer.

In the morning, we had English language classes as previous days. Our girls completed their two pages of diaries for a magazine, which will be given to them at the end of the English classes.

They were given their best two pages of diaries they had already written as the homework. English teachers checked and corrected their English and gave them back. Students wrote them out fair in black or blue ink and also draw pictures again on the new sheets. They did those tasks very seriously.

In the afternoon, we went horse trekking, or horse riding. The bus departed at 12:30 and traveled to Deborah Bay. They were given some pieces of instruction about what they should do or should not do when they are riding on horses.

At first some of the girls looked anxious or scared but they enjoyed it very much as soon as they started riding. They were very careful not to scream as they were told.

The weather was perfect for horse riding. How lucky they are to have such a good weather during their stay here.

We are going golf tomorrow. And we must conclude our visit tomorrow evening.

Time flies!

I’m sure they have learned a lot and grown up very much.

 今日の午前の授業は、これまで宿題として提出してきた英語日記を製本するために、先生に添削されたものを清書する作業となりました。昨年や一昨年の生徒たちが作った英語日記の冊子を見て、生徒たちは俄然やる気に。真剣に写していました。

 午後から2グループに分かれ、1つはゴルフ、1つはバディの授業に行きました。私はゴルフの方を引率しました。学校から車で20分ほどのゴルフ場で、プロのコーチがパターやアプローチなどのレッスンをしてくれた後、コースに出て1ホールまわりました。約1時間半の体験でしたが、生徒たちからは「楽しい!」「あと1時間はやりたい」「日本に帰ったらゴルフやろうかな~」などの声が…。ゴルフを満喫した証拠ですね。

明日は午前中の英語授業の後、午後は乗馬・バディの授業の2グループに分かれます。また、夜、フェアウェルパーティーが行われます。
