Hello and welcome to the final special lesson blog for this year – and Mr. Martin’s final blog as a Sunrise teacher!

Well, it being March there was only one thing that this blog could be about – graduation! The Fluttery Butterflies prepared well all through March towards their final, special day. They learned their speeches, the practiced the songs (in English and in Japanese!) and they learned where to stand and, most importantly, how to sit nicely! It was a wonderful day for everyone involved and all the Sunrise teachers would like to thank the parents who came along to make the day so special.

We’d also like to give a special big thank you to the parents for the events they planned after the official graduation ceremony. The quiz, songs, and improvised dancing (thank you Ishin!) was lots and lots of fun.

And from me, Mr Martin, I would like to thank the parents, teachers and of course Sunrise Kids who made the last three years so memorable. I wish you all the best for the future.

During the month of November Americans celebrate how the English travelled to America and encountered strife before being rescued by the native Indians and subsequently taking the land for themselves. This is the holiday of Thanksgiving. We decided to celebrate this holiday too in which families gather together and have a big feast as a reminder for what the native Indians gifted their ancestors.



Cutting and sticking, but what are they making?


A black hat and an orange mouth, what could it be?

We hope everyone enjoyed the celebrations and we look forward to having the Christmas party next month!


Hello and welcome to this week’s monthly special lesson blog!


Well, there could only be one thing this month is about – Halloween! On Thursday this week Sunrise had our scary, scary Halloween party! Everyone dressed up in their wonderful costumes and had a wonderful fashion parade. Then we went down to Okano park where, helped by some wonderfully kind parents, we had a fantastic stamp rally. There, the Sunrise kids also got some delicious treats and fun toys to play with.


All-in-all it was a brilliant day for everyone. We especially would like to thank the parents and friends who helped us out on the big day. Your help is truly appreciated!

The fun begins!

Summer Pool Time!

Hello everyone and welcome to the monthly blog for August!

It’s been a very busy month with seasonal school and summer school but we found enough time to get outside and have some splashing good fun! Which brings us onto the topic for this month, POOL TIME!

Yes, we had a heap of fun playing in the pool and simply playing with water. So let’s get right into it.


The older kids first tried jumping over a bar. This was to provide confidence when getting wet and to improve jumping ability.


This exercise really caused a splash with everyone!


But then they tried swimming UNDER the bar! A little more challenging, but much more rewarding.


Some managed to swim even in such shallow water!


The caterpillars also had some serious fun with all the toys!


And the little caterpillars LOVED getting the teachers wet!


These Renaissance lessons gave the Shiny Butterflies all the skills they needed for our Sunrise pool days.


And hopefully they can be put to use outside of the school too.



Even the seasonal school kids had a blast getting drenched splashing away!


Well that concludes our summer, Sunrise story for this month. It was busy, but exceptionally fun! Throw in the summer holiday and that is a recipe for best month of the year! We hope you had as much fun as we did and look forward to September!

Shaved Ice Party!

Hello and welcome to this month’s special lesson blog!


It was summer this month so to celebrate the hot days finally arriving Sunrise had a wonderful shaved ice party! Before the big day we practiced hard on what to say and how to ask for some shaved ice. But not only that, we also learned a little bit about shopping and how to buy things.


Then, the big day rolled around! We were all able to eat some cool and refreshing shaved ice with a choice of three delicious flavors (blue Hawaii, melon and strawberry.) We had a great time showing off how our tongues changed color when we ate the delicious treat – all in all it was a wonderful day that was enjoyed by all!



We’re learning how to shop!
