Principal’s Message

Dear HIS Community

We had two guest speakers in this week and I would like to thank Noh performer,  Kinue Oshima sensei, who introduced Noh to our PYP students and also Professor Machida from Hiroshima University who gave a presentation to our DP students on language and thought. These were great learning experiences for our students. We also have six students from Shudo University who will be visiting over the next two months as part of their service program so we appreciate the support from our wider Hiroshima community.

I teach the Grade 12 DP Language and Literature class and we have been looking at some powerful speeches, each influential in unique ways. I particularly like this message by spoken word poet Sarah Kay titled, ‘If I should have a daughter… ‘ An wonderful example of the beauty of the spoken word and some great advice for us all. I thought you may like it. Enjoy the long weekend.

Kind regards

Damian Rentoule
