『Redwood』って?

当スクールの名前の由来についてご紹介させて頂きます。

『Redwood』とは、赤い木.....では無く、樹木の名前です!(和名:セコイア)


杉に似たその木のように、真っ直ぐに長く長く、
生徒さん達が学習を続けていける様に、レベルアップして行くように...
とのイメージでつけました。

写真が当校にございますので、
ご見学がてらぜひ見にいらしてくださいね☆

人間と比べてある写真ですが、衝撃的な大きさですよ~☆

English food!

Some people think that English food can be a bit bland and boring. True, it isn't spicy and it doesn't always have a lot of flavour but I still think it's delicious!

Below, there are a couple of photos of some food Mariko and I enjoyed on a trip back to England.

This is at a cafe in Haworth, the village most famous for the Bronte sisters who were writers in the 19th Century.

It's a plate of fish and chips with mushy peas. There are also half-slices of bread and a cup of tea!

This photo was taken at a cafe in Salt's Mill, near my family home. There is an art gallery inside, full of paintings by the famous Bradford artist, David Hockney.

This is a plate of sausages, mashed potato and gravy. Really tasty!

School lunch

I ate many Japanese school lunches when I was an ALT (Assistant Language Teacher) down in Shimane prefecture three years ago. It was very different from what I experienced when I was a child growing up in England.

Firstly, let's take a look at a typical Japanese school lunch:

Japanese+school+lunch_convert_20111019202454.jpg

There's a bowl of rice, salad, beef & vegetable stew, fish and a glass of milk. It's all fairly healthy and nutritious.

In England, very often students can choose whether they want a hot meal made for them at school or to take a packed lunch.

A hot meal may look something like this:

British school lunch

In this lunch, there is mashed potato, broccoli, fried chicken, tomato sauce, bread, a cookie and some juice. Students will usually have a dessert with every meal. Sometimes an apple or a banana, other times something hot like apple pie with custard! It's quite tasty but not very healthy and people are starting to think of ways to improve the school lunches.

This is a typical packed lunch:

You will almost always have a sandwich with one or two fillings (egg, tuna, chicken, beef, ham etc) then maybe a packet of crisps, a chocolate bar and some fruit. It tastes nice but it isn't the healthiest choice is it?!


Aside from the differences in what school children eat, the other big difference is that in Japan the students help serve the food and everybody starts eating at the same time. This doesn't happen in England. You usually wait in a queue, a dinner lady will serve your food and then you sit down at a table and start eating.

School lunch in Japan is more about educating the students about nutrition and good eating habits whereas in England the focus is on refuelling the children for the afternoon!
