What an amazing morning!
It was a privilege to be invited to NGHS this morning to participate in a ‘taste of Japan’ day, one that 5L could not refuse. It was ran by Mr and Mr’s Fujii- Fuji Sensei- who shared their expert knowledge and taught us many things about Japanese culture. We learnt how to bow to say hello, introduce ourselves by poking our noses, safe ways to cross the road and how to protect ourselves during an earth quake.
There were many challenges including the attempt at mastering the correct use of chopsticks and taking great care to fold our own origami dogs. The morning finished off with a fantastic lesson in how to make sushi, where groups had the opportunity to choose the ingredients that would be rolled into sushi before Mr Lawson’s favourite part of taste testing.
Myself, Mr Higgins and Mr Leonard were very impressed with the behaviour demonstrated during this trip. I am very happy to say 5L were brilliant representatives of NJS, showing excellent manners and keen attitudes.
