The Consulate General of Japan recently ran a painting competition for primary schools with the aim of strengthening the friendship between Scotland and Japan. Children were asked to paint or draw what they see when they think of Japan.
Two Wardie pupils won prizes in the competition – Lukas in P5P won first prize in the Primary 5-6 category for his fantastic and stylish picture of Japanese trains. Kitty in P6L received a prize for best overall picture for her more traditional painting of a tea ceremony.
Both children were very proud to be presented with their prizes by the Japanese Consulate General in the beautiful surroundings of St Mary’s Cathedral in Palmerston Place on Saturday 7th May – Japanese Children’s Day.
