The children leave SALA to go home when
"the bell of love" (sound of bell broadcased by
the City of Fuchu to tell people time) rings
Our full attention is paid especially on the Puppy Members (elementary school children). When parent's permission is specially given we ask the children to participate in activities according to the permission.
The children are asked not to bring much money when
they come to SALA
Many people are coming in and out at the time of the activities. In order to avoide an incidence of lost money we ask the children to bring just a small amount of money enough for soft drinks and so on. Moreover, we also ask the children not to bring in expensive things or games with them.
We ask the members to wear the clothes they do not mind to
get dirty when coming to SALA
Their clothes and shoes easily get dirty while they are working on a dog walk and cleaning the dog cages. We ask the parents to let the children wear the clothes that they do not mind to get dirty .
We ask the children to wear their name plates and caps
at various events and even at their daily works at SALA
We try to have the children recognize that they are participating in the activities as one of the members.
Please let the children to attend the evens and meetings
as much as possible
The meetings that members gather would be an important occasion where they can strengthen ties among friends, think of the future policy and make decisions.
The activities in the public place would be the formal occasion for the children that are different from their daily life. This is also the occasion for the children to recognize themselves as a member of the society. We hope that the children's family members will also participate in the activities as a part of the social education.
