Japanese life is just the business
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.
