As we welcomed our students back to campus last week, Seisen International School faculty and staff were keenly aware of the devastation facing other communities and families as a result of the powerful earthquake that struck the Noto Peninsula and surrounding areas.
Coming together as a community to help others in a time of great need is central to our mission as a Catholic school. Given some of the difficulties being experienced with the deliveries of supplies, and the request for monetary donations by Ishikawa Prefecture, as a first step we are focusing on a monetary donation to the Japan Red Cross from our school to aid with immediate needs of the survivors.
ONE COIN, ONE NOTE January 18th
On January 18th we will hold a Dress for Japan Day where donations can be made of one coin (¥500) or one note ( at your discretion ¥1,000 or ¥5,000 or ¥10,000).
Students will come to school dressed in the colors of red / white / combination of both colors rather than the regular school uniform.
With our heartfelt sympathy to the people of Japan in this time of deep sorrow.
In Friendship and Fellowship,
Head of School
- On 1 January 2024 at 16:10 (Japan Standard Time), a magnitude 7.6 earthquake struck the Noto Peninsula in Ishikawa Prefecture, Japan. As the epicenter was very shallow, large tremors were observed in many places and a tsunami warning was issued. Since then, 1,320 aftershocks have followed the main shock.
- The tsunami damaged at least 100 hectares in Suzu City and Noto City. Power and water supplies were still cut, communications were disrupted.
- Some districts are isolated with roads cut off and food, water, blanket and fuel, basic needs are still in short supply.
- The quake caused fires in some cities and it is estimated that hundreds of houses were burnt down.
