- Japanese day costumes
- Japanese day volunteers
- Shoe Boxes required
Japanese Day is fast approaching so start thinking about your costume! Here's a few ideas to get you started!
Kimonos, Pokemon, onesies, sushi, sumo wrestlers, ninjas, samurai, Yokai Watch, Hello Kitty, Harajuku fashion, J-Pop, Astro Boy, the possibilities are endless! Talk to Erica if you get stuck.
Do you have a secret Japanese talent you have been hiding? Are you a sushi making master or an origami whiz? Do you have experience in gardening or landscaping and would like to assist with the creation of our Zen garden? If this sounds like you, please get in touch with Erica now!
If you would like to volunteer on Japanese Day please email Erica firstname.lastname@example.org with the times you are available along with the learning group(s) you would like to assist. Students will spend the morning and middle sessions of the day with their own learning group then move into their Kazoku (family) group after lunch.
A reminder that all volunteers need to have a current Working with Children Card and are required to have completed the Expression of Interest form and online training module. Please click here to access the Expression of Interest form.
Students will be creating their own mini Zen gardens with their Kazoku (family) groups on Japanese Day. For this activity students will need to bring a shoe box with their name on it - please start bringing these in as soon as possible. If you have any spare shoe boxes that you could share please bring them in.
If you have succulents in your garden that are multiplying it would be appreciated if you could cut off any little shoots and bring them to the office. These will also be used on Japanese Day!
Arigatou gozaimasu! Erica sensei.
