Lecture at Uwatsu Primary School
On 15 May 2023, I gave a lecture at Uwatsu Elementary School in Uwajima city. It has been five years since I gave a lecture at there, in May 2018. In January this year, Principal Mr Takao Seike asked me to give a lecture at the school and I was delighted to accept. Mr Seike was the principal at Mimaki Primary School when I gave the lecture in December 2019.
The principal told me that as part of their peace learning, it is not just about watching books and videos, but actually listening to the story that will touch the children’s hearts. Next week, the sixth graders will visit Nagasaki as part of their peace studies. After the lecture, I asked the children to ring the bell and also heard from many of them what they thought.
We were impressed and very happy that they listened to us so attentively.
