This week my daughter bought her summer skirt of the school uniform. The students have to wear it in summer season. It cost 7830 yen ($66.36 €60.23).
Here is a sample of summer skirt (link to Amazon).
At her school, there is the parent organization, like a PTA. I think almost all of the parents join the organization. Today I attended the general meeting of the organization. All members can attend that meeting. The total number of students is approximately 700, and today 38 parents attended the meeting. The attending rate is 5%. At the meeting, the agendas are the budget, this year's plan, and members of the committee. There was no objection at the meeting, but there was a question on the budget. The meeting is a kind of ceremony.
