On Wednesday, March 27, year-10 students from Stowmarket High School took part in a “Take Your Place” Japanese Day.

Students sampled a variety of Japanese activities including sushi-making with Ichibin Foods, Japanese language lessons led by a lecturer at the University of East Anglia and Japanese tea ceremonies.

They also had lessons to find out more about Buddishm and meditation.

Other activities included Japanese animation and bento boxes classes.
