Today was my last day at school. When I first took lessons at KAIAPOI there were lots of surprises. Also, when it was free time, the shops opened and students who ate sweets and eaten themselves and students who eat sweets brought me were very surprised. However, it seems that it was time for sweets. Such surprises now have become usual as well. Also, in the lessons, I was surprised in other ways, such as students using a personal computer or using a mobile phone, but among us it became normal.
Today lessons were unlike the usual. There was a farewell party at the end of the day 's lessons. We sang two songs "HIKARINONAKANI" and "KITTOMATAAERUNE". We could not make practice time easily, we got together a bit during the breaks and practiced at lunch break. The performance made me very nervous. However, I was very happy that the host families and buddies gave us a warm applause. I also took pictures with a lot of people and we then got together.
