Open campus event: "Sakura Matsuri"
On March 26, the Sakura Matsuri (Cherry Blossom Festival), an open campus event, was held at Tokyo Soka Elementary School, where cherry blossoms have started to appear.
During the event, the school offered trial classes for music and living environment studies, and many of the children joined these classes. In the music class, the children enjoyed playing instruments and clapping in rhythm to music. In the class for living environment studies, the visitors made paper bouquets by gluing paper flowers together.
The participants were also given a tour of the school and were shown areas such as the Fairy Tale Lunchroom, Ikeda Memorial Hall, and the library. They also viewed the graduation exhibition in the Royal Lounge.
The next open campus event is scheduled for May, during which visitors will be able to look around many other places on campus, such as the classrooms for first-year students and the gymnasium. All the teachers and staff look forward to another large turnout.
