Tattooing is the most misunderstood art form in Japan today. Looked down upon for centuries and rarely discussed in social circles, people with tattoos are outcasts in this country, banned from most public spaces such as beaches, bathhouses, and even gyms. Tattoos have an extensive history in Japan, and to truly understand the stigma behind them it is essential to be aware of their significance. The first records of tattoos...

There are 28 students in our school. About 1/5 of them are vegetarian, pescatarian or vegan, which means that they can’t eat certain animal products. And allow me to state this to you, Japan is not a good place to do that. Sushi? Nope. Ramen? Nope. And then there is a problem with the fact that our Japanese skills are non-existent. So we go to restaurants, trying to communicate our...

As our term recently came to a close in Japan, I was reminded of the very first days of this academic year, way back when in Botswana. 40-something individuals from all over the world, meeting each other for the first time, living in tents, surrounded by wild animals. Nothing could go wrong! It did..... many a time. And we learned from it. Then we traveled to India. Among the ceaseless...

Walking through the Peace Park, my soul would tremble due to the cold that was brought on by the horrors of war, especially August 6th, 1945, the day when the A-bomb, also known as “Little Boy,” was dropped on the city of Hiroshima. Among the thousands who were killed, a vast number were kids --  innocent kids with dreams in their eyes and aspirations in their minds. This painting is...

広島のとあるカフェに、最近さまざまな国の高校生がやって来ては、PCを持ち込んで勉強している姿が…。聞けば、彼らは常にさまざまな国を移動しながら、学んでいると言います。2017年度はボツワナ、インドを経て、現在約2カ月の予定で日本(広島)に拠点を置く学校は、その名も、「」。約40カ国45人の生徒たちが、参加しています。彼らは、何をどんな風に学んでいるのでしょう? 広島に滞在中のジェイミー・ステッカート校長に、お話を伺いました。

“Tokyo gives the most authentic glimpse of the future” student Zaki (Pakistan) reflects as we returned from our week of exploring the art of marketing in Japan’s capital. Throughout the past weeks in Japan, nine of us have been specifically studying global marketing as well as Japanese unique and diverse marketing tactics. Not only have we been studying these concepts, but we are applying them as marketing and branding consultants...

To teach students to be Changemakers, they must be exposed to them, often. After overhearing a rare conversation in Arabic here in Hiroshima, I did what all good global citizens and travelers would: offered them peace. Asalaamu alaikum (peace be with you), I said. Wa alaikum salaam (peace be unto you) They responded. Due to my lack of true Arabic skill, this quickly turned into an English conversation that revealed...

The Nuclear Debate module has been pretty fun for me, but I’m not the biggest fan of history. Therefore, after hearing that on this weXplore we will finally be focusing on some science stuff, I could not wait to finally learn the things that I’ve been looking forward to. I thought I’d be having so much fun getting to know how things work and how the world might be in...

I would describe this weXplore as part family road trip and part school museum visit, as we spent our time traveling by bus, ferry, and foot to and from museums, energy parks and power plants. We went to 3 different cities and many small towns, often stopping at either 7-11, Family Mart, or Lawson’s for lunch in order to spend more time engaging with experts, tour guides, and information booklets....

Last month, during our UK weXplore, I took fourteen students to get fitted for kilts at the Highland House of Fraser in Inverness, Scotland. I must say, each time I plan an activity involving traditional dress I get a mixed bag of looks and reactions from my colleagues and students on whether donning cultural dress is acceptable or disrespectful. Hopefully through this blog I can clarify my opinions on the...
