Thanks to everyone who joined our bowling party on Saturday! We went to Round 1 in Chikusa and played 3 games, chatted a lot and had lots of fun. The highest scorer in a single game was Maki with 170. The highest overall scorer was Kodai who scored an amazing 415 over the 3 games. Congratulations to both of you! After the bowling, we went out to Yamachan to enjoy some tasty Tebasaki. We hope you can join us at our future events!
Our school is in the Imaike area but where did the name ‘Imaike’ come from? Near Imaike Station exit 7 there is a statue that gives us a clue about its origin. The monument is of a family of three horses. It is said that this area once had a pond where horses would come to drink and wash themselves. This lake was called ‘Umaike’ or ‘Horse Pond’. Over time the pronunciation of ‘Umaike’ gradually changed and it eventually became ‘Imaike’.
