Class 1 and 2 Celebrate Japanese Children's Day

10 May 2023

Japanese teacher Junko Nicholas celebrated Japanese Children's Day with Class 1 and 2, traditionally held on 5th May. The children learned about 'Koinobori' - a mighty carp who climbed all the way up to the heavens, celebrating strength and perseverance. They are believed to be symbols of strength which are also held to protect children. They also made 'Kabuto' - an ornamental Samurai helmet - as part of their Children’s Day celebration, which traditionally are displayed at home.
