Ja­panese life is just the busi­ness

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - LYDD AIRPORT EXPANSION PLAN - by Nick Lil­li­tos

EAT­ING sushi and learn­ing how it’s made, singing Ja­panese songs and prac­tis­ing mar­tial arts were just some of the ac­tiv­i­ties en­joyed by stu­dents at Tow­ers School. “We wanted to give them the op­por­tu­nity to think about Ja­panese cul­ture across a very wide spec­trum and re­late that to busi­ness,” said Naomi Mil­li­dine, ed­u­ca­tion busi­ness links of­fi­cer for Kent Works, which was es­tab­lished by Kent County Coun­cil. The 11 to 14-year-olds were split into groups for the day, when they had to at­tend work­shops giv­ing them an in­sight into Ja­panese life, be­fore form­ing an imag­i­nary com­pany. Each ‘com­pany’ then had to pro­duce a busi­ness plan and a fi­nan­cial project.
