WOW! Matsuri Day 2018 was just fantastic! The activities ranged from SKPS famous chopstick race, Traditional Tea Ceremony performed by 5 Japanese ladies from Chado Urasenke Tankokai Melbourne, Lantern making, Origami, Japanese Calligraphy, Geisha / Oni paper plate craft, Koinobori (Carp flag) making, playing the Sumo wrestling game and making and playing Kami Tonbo (gyrocopters). We were lucky enough to have a very special demonstration by Toshi and Maiko (Wakaido Drummers). Thank you to all the children, parents and staff that looked sensational in their Japanese clothes. Also a huge thank you (Arigato gozaimasu –ありがとうございます) to all the parents that helped to make Matsuri Day so wonderful!
Please keep an eye out for more information about SKPS Matsuri Day in the upcoming edition of the ‘Leader’ local news magazine.
