2. From the Principal

 Welcome to Sasayama Homei SHS and thank you for visiting our website.

 Sasayama Homei SHS is the 142nd anniversary of its foundation this year. I am honored to be the new principal of this school.

 Our school has been committed to establish a new tradition on the long history we already have. As we know, the world today has been dramatically changing due to globalization happening not only in the world but also here, in our community. For instance, we are facing a decreasing number of children and aging population. Constant innovation in technology will change our way of life when our students pursue their career. That’s why we put more focus on 21st century learning in which each of our students will find what they can do in the future.
 Yet, that is not a brand new idea which we just came up with recently. Since our school has been established, we have had the student creed “Commitment to Academic Achievement, Justice and Physical Strength”, and “一以貫之”, the proverb from the Analects of Confucius, which means to persistently pursue our goals until we achieve them. With this spirits, which we have received from our predecessors, I am sure that our students will play important roles as responsible citizens of our global community. Of course, we teachers are committed to share this goal with our students, and ready to show you how our education changes your life.
We appreciate your understanding and constant support for us.
