My gratitude is sincere, and with it comes a sincere love. Therefore, even a gentle breeze can evoke a word of thanks in my heart.
— Ji De (from Food of the People)
As November arrives so, too, does our annual Pocky Day.
We enjoy showing our appreciation for others by sending out this sweet snack!
Pocky Day originated in Japan. Every year, 11 November (this date resembles the shape of Pocky sticks i.e., 11/11), takes on a special significance. On this date, it is has become customary to gift others with Pocky sticks to express our gratitude towards the people around us, connecting our hearts tightly together.
When Pocky Day meets SUIS Qingpu, the day is filled with surprises and joy.
Let’s see what some teachers said about Pocky day！
Ms. Allison Wang
Gratitude is a foundational emotion in social-emotional learning. Research indicates that it can have a positive effect on students’ well-being and relationships. Pocky Day provides a sweet way for students to express their love and gratitude. As a teacher, it is touching to feel that a student is thinking about you.
