A flower that does not think of competing with the flower next to it… just blooms’.

Cherry blossoms are an iconic feature of the Japanese springtime, symbolic of the Japanese spirit of beauty and life. ‘Hanami parties ‘or ‘Cherry blossom gazing’ are gatherings of friends and families under the blooming tree. To experience this beautiful tradition the Grade-1 students went on a picnic to the school grounds.

The Benton box with its riot of color and unique presentation is the quintessential cuisine of Japan encapsulated in a box. Parents of Grade 1 joined in the learning by giving a healthy, balanced and colorful bento box for lunch .
