 平成30年度が始まりました。昨年度に創立百周年を迎えた学園の、次の百年のスタートの年です。中学校に80名の、高校には281名の新たな仲間を迎えての新学年の始まりです。4月9日の午前に高校の入学式、午後に中学校の入学式、翌10日には全体の始業式を行い、全員で新たな誓いをしました。また、美しい歌声を何度も聞くことができました。

 私が年度の始めに生徒たちに言っていることは、まず「認める」ことができるようになろうということです。入学してきた生徒やクラス替えにより環境が変わった生徒たちにとって、まず心掛けて欲しいと願うことです。その話の骨子は次のようなものです。

 人は一人一人、生まれた時間も場所も、親も育ち方も感じ方もみんな違う。自分と全く同じ思いの人はいない。だから違いを認めることが大切。みんな違うのだから、それは当たり前のこと。人の違いを認めると、自分の違いも人に受け入れられる。「認める」ことができるようになれば、その分、心が成長したことになる。

 また、「認める」ことへの第一歩は、人の話を聞くことと挨拶をすること。相手の存在を認めるために、まず相手の話をしっかりと聞くことがスタート。それが、聞き上手は話し上手ということにつながる。また、挨拶はお互いを認め、大切にすることを示す一番簡単で確実な方法。なんでもない挨拶の言葉が、人の気持ちを爽快にさせる。

 年度始めに限らず、私がこれまで生徒に話をする場面でよく触れたことは「挨拶と笑顔」です。また、挨拶と笑顔が溢れる学校になって欲しいという願いを込めて、着任した5年前からできるだけ登校時間に正門で挨拶をしています。本校では正門だけではなく、校内でも生徒たちは本当に良く挨拶をします。新入生たちもすぐに挨拶ができるようになってきます。女子校の良さです。

 挨拶と笑顔を合言葉に、今年度も「落ち着いた温かな雰囲気の中で、一人一人の生徒が夢を実現していく女子校」を目指して、生徒と保護者、教員が力を合わせながら、全員で頑張ってまいります。

【English version】”The 30th school year of Heisei has started”

The year of 2018 has started. It is the year of the start of the next hundred years of Shoin Campus, which celebrated the centennial of its foundation last year. It is also the beginning of a new school year with 80 new enrolled students in junior high school and 281 in high school. The high school entrance ceremony took place on the morning of April 9, and the junior high school entrance ceremony on the afternoon of the same day, And the 1st term opening ceremony was held the next day on the 10th, when everyone made a new pledge. Also, I felt so happy because I had many opportunities to hear all of you singing very beautifully.

What I have been talking about to the students at the beginning of the school year is that I hope everybody will be able to “be open to and accept” others. To the students who have enrolled or those students whose environment has changed due to class change, this is what I want all of you to bear in mind. The outline of the story is as follows.

Everyone is different in many respects; the time and place of birth, their parents, how they are brought up and how they feel. There is no one exactly the same as you yourself, so it is important to recognize differences. This should be thought to be in the natural order of things, since everyone is different. When you acknowledge the differences between people, you can accept your own differences. If you are open to mutual differences, you can stimulate a new psychological growth.

Also, the first step in being ‘open’ is to listen to what other people say and make the usual greetings. In order to acknowledge the presence of others, the first thing you should do is to listen attentively to what they say. This attitude will lead to the recognition that good listeners will become better speakers, and greetings are the easiest and surest way to acknowledge one another. Daily greeting words make people feel refreshed.
Not only at the beginning of the school year, as I am doing now, but during the year, I talk to students about “greetings and smiles.” This is because I wish to have this school full of greetings and smiles, I have made it a point of saying good morning at the main gate as much as possible for these five years, since I began to work here. Not only at the main gate but everywhere in our school, students exchange cheerful, polite greetings. New students will soon be learning to shout out ‘good morning’. It is one of the great points of a girls’ school.

With verbal greetings and smiles, this year we are also aiming for a “girls’ school, where each student realizes their dreams in a calm and warm atmosphere”, with students, parents and teachers working together, I will keep doing my best with all of the faculty members.
