24th May. Airport, Meeting Again, Farewell Party

Airport, Meeting Again, Farewell Party
5月24日 空港・再会・送別会

I visited GPS Faleloa, which is located in the north end of Ha’apai main islands, with Kimika. On the way, the airport crossing stopped us. It was my first time to see the crossing closed.
 After the airplane crosses the main road, the gate opens and we can cross the runway. That’s funny.

We called on Hiva, who was my student last year in TIOE, and observed his abacus class (Class 3 & 4). He can make effort and has a methodical nature like Sefo so when I saw his class, at once I realized that he is eagerly teaching abacus. He was also teaching the contents “Why the correct fingering is important” as I taught him last year.
 Last year, the school was poor at teaching abacus, but I am sure he can change it.


He said that he will start extra abacus classes after school soon and then, he wants to defeat GPS Pangai which is the No.1 school in the Kingdom of Tonga. I really look forward to running the Ha’apai competition on 28 July 2011.


After his class, I gave No.290 and No.291 YAMANEKO doll to Hiva and Seilani (Class 5 teacher). Seilani is Hiva’s wife and was also my class room student last year. Both of them were very good students and have similar personalities. Definitely GPS Faleloa is becoming a very good school.


Around noon, we visited Matafonua restaurant to have lunch. Kimika ate well as usual.


A few months ago, the cyclone hit the resort and broke a lot of accommodations. Recently the new owners are taking over the business and it’s getting better.



After that we swam a little and went back to Pangai which is the capital of Ha’apai Island. On the way, we found a beach where we haven’t come before. It was a beautiful beach.


At night, we had a farewell party for Koichi. He has to leave Ha’apai next month. Thank you for your trouble for 2 years. We ate and drank a lot.
