Interesting Facts about Kangaroos (カンガルーについて） No. 2
Many people asked me why I chose to name my school ‘Kangaroo’. People who know me thought it was because I was Australian. Others thought that kangaroos were my favourite animals.
Truth be told though, it’s more like a combination of factors. First of all kangaroos are iconic creatures and draw attention effortlessly and secondly they can’t move backwards. These two factors are important from both a marketing and philosophical viewpoint. The fact that kangaroos can’t move backwards makes one think that they are always moving foward. Hopefully, Kanagroo school will also only move fowards and its goal is for its students to always be progressing also.
Speaking of kangaroos and their movements, another interesting fact is that kangaroos cannot move their legs individually on land but can when they swim. Have you ever seen a kangaroo swim?
