校長ブログ

 令和2年6月は忘れられない月になりました。1日の午前は高校の入学式をオンラインで放映しながら新入生だけで行い、午後には中学の入学式を新入生と保護者の方と一緒に実施しました。創立103年になる樟蔭の初めての夏服での入学式となりました。TVや新聞でも報道をして頂けましたが、無事に行うことができてほっとしました。

 2日は今年度の始業式を校内放送で行いました。3密を避けるために全校生徒を2つのグループに分け、午前と午後に合わせて2回実施しました。両日とも生徒の登校の様子を見ていましたが、笑顔の生徒が大変多く、我々教職員も思わず笑顔になり、これまでの心配もどこかに飛んで行ってくれました。学校はやはり生徒がいないと駄目です。

 3日からの2週間は、2日と同じように午前と午後に分かれた分散授業です。可能な限り3密に注意をして、手洗いを始め消毒に最大限気を付けながらの日々でした。それぞれ生徒が下校した後に、教員が消毒をして回っていた光景が目に焼き付いています。学校全体で本当によく頑張った2週間でした。

 そして17日からは通常授業の開始です。3密は当然ですが、急に気温が高くなってきたこともあり、さらに熱中症にも気を付けねばならなくなりました。冷房しながら換気もします。教員はできるだけ気を付けていますが、生徒たちもよく動いてくれています。数日後には生徒も教員も学校における新しい生活様式にも慣れて、少しだけ余裕が出て来ました。

 しかし、それが油断に繋がってはいけません。新型コロナ感染の第2波に備えることも忘れてはいけません。全国的に見て7割の人が備えているとのアンケート回答がありましたが、東京都の状況を見ても、準備は全員の人が常にしておくべきでしょう。我々教員もオンライン学習の充実度をさらに上げるなど、それぞれが今何をすべきかを常に意識しながら、終息宣言がある日まで、笑顔を忘れずに努力を続けてまいります。

【English version】”The 2nd Year of Reiwa”

The 2nd year of Reiwa has already become an unforgettable year for me. On the morning of June 1st, we held our high school entrance ceremony online with only new students and the school’s teachers in attendance in the gym. On the same afternoon, we held the entrance ceremony for 70 new junior high school students and their parents. It was the first time in Shoin’s 103-year-long history that our students had worn their summer uniforms to these ceremonies. Both of these important ceremonies were reported on TV and in newspapers and I was so relieved that everything went both smoothly and safely.
The following day, on June 2nd, the school’s opening ceremonies were held on campus. In order to avoid the three C’s – closed spaces, crowded places and close contact, each class was divided into two groups and the same ceremony was held twice, once in the morning, and once in the afternoon. At the main school gate on both days, I observed the students entering the school grounds. I was relieved to encounter a lot of smiling students and teachers, and some of my initial concerns disappeared. Schools need students.
For 2 weeks, starting on June 3rd, all students were divided into two groups based on their student number, with half of the students attending morning lessons and the remaining half attending lessons in the afternoon. During those two weeks, the entire school body was extremely attentive in observing social distancing practices, and paid increased attention to general hygiene, and in particular, hand washing. The sight of teachers disinfecting the school’s classrooms after the students had returned home each day was so impressive. It was a really good two weeks for the school as a whole.
Regular classes started from June 17th, and day by day the temperature has risen. We now must be careful about classroom conditions and heat stroke, while keeping classrooms cool but also ventilated at the same time. The teachers are doing their utmost to be as careful as possible, and the students are playing their part by cooperating with these new conditions. In just a short space of time, both the students and teachers seem to have gotten used to this new way of life at school.
However, regardless of the progress we have made, we need to continue to be aware of a possible second wave of this new corona infection. According to a recent survey, 70% of the people in Japan are continuing their preparations. Looking at the situation in Tokyo, we must all remain vigilant. Shoin’s teachers will continue to make every effort to improve the quality of online learning, keeping in mind what they need to do for their students while remaining positive until the day victory over this emergency is declared.
