Sunday School at Seinan Jo Gakuin (Baptist Girls School in Kokura, Japan)

Seinan Jo Gakuin (Baptist Girls School in Kokura, Japan) opened in April 1922. The students went to school six days a week. On Sundays, a half-day Sunday School was held on campus. There were only three buildings in the beginning - the main classroom building (which reverted to a dorm in 1925), a gym, and a dormitory. Not sure which one this is, but its the same building used in the opening day group photo (see adjoining photo). The Sunday School was open to the small children of the community. This may be a photo of the eight student-teachers (the taller girls wearing the same school uniform), and a group of children from the Sunday School.
