Kamiuchi Elementary School

Date of activity: June 15th

Kamiuchi Elementary School


60 kids, a few teachers and lots of positive energy. That’s the formula for Kamiuchi Elementary School. A super awesome school we visited in the Omuta Area, Fukuoka Prefecture.

I had the chance to hang out with the kids from 3rd and 4th grade… They are just amazing. So open and willing to learn… I think it all comes from their “super sensei” as I called him, because he teaches both grades at the same time, in the same classroom without losing his smile and his passion for education.

The rest of the world has a lot to learn from small places like Kamiuchi where small is not bad is simply different, GOOD Different!
