Sera Town Junior High School

By Ms. Lori Nakano on August 26, 2016

On Monday, August 22nd, Niu Valley got to meet and mingle with special visitors from Sera Town Junior High School in Japan.  Our student council officers and select leadership students engaged in a cultural exchange.  Our Japanese visitors taught our students about different cultural practices in Japan.  Students got to play kendama and koma, create origami, write in calligraphy, and try on a traditional kimono.  In exchange, Niu Valley students gave our visitors kukui nut leis, taught common phrases in Olelo Hawaii (Hawaiian Language), practiced basic hula steps, and played Gagaball.  Sera Town students especially enjoyed meeting outstanding Japanese language students as they toured campus and visited different classes to experience the day-in-a-life of a Niu Valley Middle School student.

On August 19, 2016, students from every grade had a Team Bonding field trip.  6th grade students from Team A had a fun filled day full of events on campus.  6th grade students from Team B went to Hickam Bowling while the entire 7th grade class went to Ice Palace, and the entire 8th grade class went on a hiking trip to Makapuu.  Pictured is Mr. Tajima participating in a "Balloon Bust" game where a water balloon is dropped if a student hits the target.
