  1. No mechanical pencils or pen? ok, make sense in elementary school, but what is about in the high school or university?
    some rules are well known in Germany, but are more and more loosing to use it generally. Some other rules are less or not known here. ( as example with the accessoires or games, even for the pause. )

    Good work and I like the bloopers really too! It nice to see, how easy or hard to work on films or just little clips. I appreciate it really!

  2. No mechanical pencils!!! No Pentel!!! I thought Japanese were all about stationary!! I will not live in Japanese school.

  3. In my school you dye your hair you can, let me put the list:
    1: you dye your hair
    2:mobile
    3: accessories
    4:fooling around
    5:yes snacks
    My school allows all this

  4. Ok, first in HK we can eat snacks, we need to bring pens and mechanical pencils, we can have accessories

  5. I would die if I was in a elementary school in Japan btw I’m starting middle school wish me luck

  6. Well I have my hair dyed :3 and i always eat snack in break and sometimes fool Around, bring the phone with me, put accesories, we dont Even have uniform. We basically dont have rules (and we have a Janitor that cleans for us)

  7. In my school u can use regular pencils most teachers hate mechanical pencils and be have to have pencils

  8. I got my hair dip dyed (I’m from Scotland) and I got sent to the head teacher and threatened to cut ma hair lol

  9. I'm England, I'm allowed to: bringing games in, wear earrings and bracelets, being our own pens and pencils in, we can bring in phones but we have to turn them off, put them in a cupboard and get them out at the end of the day.

    We're not allowed to: sleep although this one boy always fell asleep so he didn't get told off 😂, dye our hair but we don't get told off for it, we're not allowed snacks during class but some people just sneak them at break, be silly (fool around).

    We don't have a blackboard but we have a whiteboard which nobody even writes on apart from the teacher and we have janitors 😉

  10. OK at my school we have a janitors but we stopped to clean the classroom I think it’s kind of pointless because now the janitors are just working for no reason like that they could be spending their time doing something else but they’re cleaning my classrooms in my school or the classrooms in my school even though they’re clean like we have to clean out the compost and empty them we have to empty the garbage we have to empty the recycling we have to clean our white boards and chalkboards we have to sweep and mop clean. Up shoes that aren’t in their cubbies one of the desks clean them take the truck out of the chalkboard eraser is like basically everything

  11. At my school you can

    1.dye your hair
    2.use mechanical pencil

  28. Why cant they wear accesories or dye their hair? I have dyed hair and earrings and my school doesnt care😂 i also use mechanical pencils

  29. At a very early age, they were already taught in how to be basic, simple, respectful, polite and discipline. That's why Japan is different from any other countries in the world

    -No selling stuff on site
    -Respect nature around the school
    -Teachers on break duty give you detention for littering
