Elementary School Lunch (Kyuushoku) in November

Here’s the monthly menu for my meals in November.

If you haven’t noticed, I don’t eat lunch with my students. On occasion, I will eat with my students if invited to, but for the most part, I eat in the back of the teacher’s room with the other office staff. At my secondary school, I do eat with my students (which is why there are no pictures from my other school).

In my old schools under my old Board of Education, ALTs were banned from eating school lunch and eating with students. Because of this, I brought my own lunches to school and ate them alone at my desk. It was quite a lonely experience, especially because I’d be the only teacher in the teacher’s room most of the time… Though the pressure of not having to make conversation while eating was nice.
