3月3日に高校、18日に中学校の卒業式を実施しました。感染予防の観点から短縮して行いましたが、いずれも厳粛な中に女子校としての華やかさが感じられる立派な式でした。この中学・高校の卒業生たちは、2年に進級する時にいきなり休校から始まりました。それ以来、多くの学校行事が延期または中止になり、また実施してもこれまでより内容を縮小するなど、この2年間我慢を強いられた学年です。その中で、高校を卒業したある生徒に、休校になった時の体験談を聞くことができました。

休校になってクラブにも行けず、家でゴロゴロ状態が続いていた中、それまで韓国ドラマが好きだったこともあり、韓国語を「勉強してみよう」という気になった。初級テキストから始めてみると思ったより分かり易く、面白いと感じ次第に填まって行った。その後、ユーチューブなども使って簡単な会話も聞き取れるようになってきた。

休校が明けてクラブも再開したが、韓国語の勉強も続けた。学校の授業でも韓国語を選択していて、担当の教師にもいろいろと質問をすることができた。クラブで疲れ切った時も韓国語の勉強は続けた。3年生になってクラブのキャプテンにもなり、毎日が大変忙しかったが、その時になぜか「本当に学校が楽しい」と感じた。それは自分でやることを決め、それに打ち込むことが出来たからだと思う。

彼女はその後も猛勉強をして、高3の7月には韓国語能力試験の最高級である6級に合格するまでになりました。そして韓国の大学に進もうと決心し、受験し、結局3つの大学に合格しました。そのうち、入学したのが漢陽大学という学校です。韓国の大学は全部で224校ありますが、韓国の新聞社の中央日報が発表する韓国国内の大学総合力ランキングでは3位の学校です。合格した他の2校もランキング2位と6位の大学です。

彼女がキャプテンを務めるクラブは今年度全国優勝を果たし、2月末には大阪府知事への表敬訪問をすることが出来ました。まさに文武両道を実践した生徒ですが、自分でやると決め最後までやり抜いたことの素晴らしさを称賛したいと思います。3月19日に行った終業式で、誇らしい先輩として後輩たちへお話をしたところです。

【English version】”During the closure of the school”

The graduation ceremonies for the high school and junior high school were held on March 3rd and March 18th respectively. In an attempt to limit the spread of Coronavirus, the ceremonies were kept shorter than usual and in spite of the serious circumstances, the ceremonies were a wonderful success. The students who graduated began the start of their second years in junior high school and high school not being able to attend school due to its closure under Coronavirus restrictions. Since then, many school events were either cancelled or shortened as a result of the pandemic. The students who graduated really had to endure a lot, and one of them shared her story with me about how she spent her time during the closure of the school.

While the school was closed, she couldn’t attend her club activities, and while she lay around the house, she decided to start studying Korean after already becoming a fan of Korean dramas. She bought a beginner level textbook and gradually began to enjoy studying more and more. She later started to use YouTube and found she could understand basic Korean conversations.

When school restarted and her club activities commenced, she continued to study Korean. She selected the Korean class in school and was able to ask the teacher many different questions in Korean. Even when she was exhausted after her club activities, she still continued studying. In the third grade, she became the captain of her club and even busier than before. But at that time, for some reason, she felt that she really enjoyed school. I think this is because she took the initiative, chose something by herself and devoted herself to it.

After that, she continued to study very enthusiastically, and in July of her third grade in high school, she passed grade 6 – the highest level of the Korean language proficiency test. She then decided to apply to several universities in Korea, took the entrance exams, and passed three of them. She decided to attend Kanyou university, ranked 3rd most prestigious university in Korea out of 224 institutions. The other two universities she passed were ranked 2nd and 6th most prestigious, according to the Korean newspaper company Central Daily Report.

This year, the club she captained won the national championships and at the end of February was able to make a courtesy visit to the Osaka prefectural governor. A student who showed mastery of both the literary and physical arts, I would like to commend her ability to make a decision and to see it through till the end with consistent hard work. At the school’s closing ceremony on March 19th, I told her splendid story to her juniors.
