Community Service at Nishimachi - in support of people and environment
Posted 10/18/2017 07:42AM


Nishimachi 's Community Service Committee, together with students and teachers, has been supporting a number of initiative over the years that help to raise awareness about social and environmental issues, and stimulates being considerate and supportive to the world around us, both people and environment.

As one of our activities, we have been supporters of the homeless people in Shibuya for several years now. Our first mission this school year was to collect "unsold food" from the Food Fair which was held on the October 7th and deliver it to the people in need, instead of throwing it away.

Many thanks to all the Food Fair booths for their donations at the end of the fair. It was great to see everyone still had the energy to make this meaningful effort at the end of an exciting day.

Our enthusiastic MS students not only helped with collecting the unsold items, but also acted as creative chefs in preparing delicious Obentos, hotdogs and soup for donation.

The following morning at 5 AM, 5 MS and ES students delivered the collected food packed in eco-friendly containers with eco-friendly cutleries and enjoyed having conversations with the homeless people. A big thank you for everyone who got up so early to make this huge difference, involving both teachers and students.

The homeless people in Tokyo are often said to be not noticed, but we sure did see many happy smiles from everyone there in Shibuya that morning. (written by Sayako Kaneko, TNK Community Service Committee Co-chair)


西町インターナショナルスクールのコミュニティーサービスコミティーは、生徒と先生たちとともに私たちを取り巻く人々や環境に配慮し、支援する活動に取り組んでおります。

その活動の一環で、ホームレスの方々の支援を行っております。新学期が始まり、私たちの最初の活動は、10月7日に開催されたフードフェアで売れ残った美味しい各国のお料理をお弁当にしてホームレスの方々にお届けすることでした。

各国ブースに寄付して頂いた沢山の食べ物を集め、中学部の生徒達が美味しいお弁当やお菓子を詰め合わせ、ホットドックやスープを調理いたしました。

翌朝5時に5人の小学部、中学部の生徒達、そして3人の先生方が集まり、渋谷のホームレスの方々に環境に配慮した入れ物に詰めたお弁当と環境に優しいカトラリーを配りました。配りながらホームレスの方々とお話しした事は貴重な体験となりました。

ホームレスの方々と接する機会はなかなかありませんが、この朝渋谷に集った人々皆が笑顔になり、幸せな時間を共有することができました。(文 金子 沙綾子、友の会コミュニティサービス共同委員長)
