Happy Japanese Children’s Day 5th May!

Japanese children's day display Thanks to the students that participated in creating this display during art lessons and art club just in time for Japanese Children’s Day.

Traditionally children make Koi Carp Kites in Japan. We have done a mini-version for our school display.

You can view it in the foyer on the school by the staffroom.

A special thanks to Tanya and Diana for helping me to put it together.
