Transcript of Everyday Life in Japanese Schools

By Stephanie Coady School Life in Japan The Education System
in Japan Clubs Japan's school system is a very different system to the one we have in Australia. In Japan, there is elementary school (lasts six years), middle school (three years), high school (another three years) and then finally university (four years). Elementary and middle school are compulsory and high school and university is optional. Recently, middle and high schools have combined into a one school consisting of six school years. Our Counterparts Education Systems In Japan In Australia Year 9 in Australia is equivalent to third year middle school in Japan. If we lived in a suburban area of Japan, we would have to walk to school in the district. This would take about five to fifteen minutes to walk if you are in a public school but if you went to a private school, you would have to take public transport in rush hour with adults. School starts at about 8:30am and every Monday starts with a fifteen-minute assembly which everyone at the school attends. Every other day starts with making announcements with their class and doing the class roll (like our form assembly). Each class goes for about fifty minutes with a five to ten minutes break in between each class. Lunch time starts at 12:30pm goes till about 1:10pm. At public schools, the students are responsible for carrying the meals to their classrooms from the school's canteen for cleaning up afterwards. After lunch it is time for recess or for cleaning up. Recess goes for 20 minutes and the schools that clean up during the time make the students move the desks and chairs to one side of the room, then broom and wipe the floor, clean the blackboard and throw away the rubbish. After recess, afternoon classes start. On most days there are about five classes but some days can consist of six classes. After all the classes finish, the students take part in extracurricular activities in areas that they enjoy. If students don't take part in extracurricular activities, school finishes at about 3:00pm. Some clubs meet several times a week, or even everyday, and on some days students don't leave school until around 5:00pm. Some of the popular clubs are: Baseball Soccer Judo Go Brass Band Tea Ceremony Flower Arrangement ...and many more! Some of the popular clubs are: Cleaning In Japan, students in elementary, middle and high school clean the school for a short amount of time after lunch and after school. They sweep the hall floors, clean windows, scrub toilets and empty the rubbish bins. Because of this, Japanese schools don't have cleaners.
