The school divides vertically into four teams for the Sports Festival every Fall.
Boys prepare for a battle! !
Girls have a battle of their own with a long rope.

Boys about to battle! They try to knock each other off.
TSUNAHIKI (tug-of-war) blue versus white.
The relay pass!
The agony of defeat and the victor's smile.
The closing "folk dance" to Turkey-in-the-straw.
