Japanese Children’s Day
ALMOST 300 students from different schools celebrated Japanese Children’s Day in City Beach recently.
Students from St Mary’s Anglican Girls’ School, Newborough Primary School, Churchlands Senior High School, Living Waters Lutheran College and Thornlie Senior High School gathered at the Hyogo Cultural Centre last week for the event.
The years 4 to Year 12 students took part in kite making and flying, and enjoyed the miniature samurai armour on display.
West Leederville kite expert Michael Alvares taught the children how to make kites and about Japanese culture.
Hyogo Cultural Centre Melissa Luyke said it was a “great opportunity” for students from multicultural backgrounds, different ages and schools to celebrate the Japanese national day.
