Last week The Japan Society organised a Virtual Sixth Form Japan Week for students in the U.K. and Charters School in Sunningdale were delighted to take part. The event, which ran from 1st to 4th December, gave an insight into all aspects of Japan from traditional to modern and included lectures, talks, demonstrations and workshops.

Year 13 student Erin Hornibrook was one of the participants from Charters and said, "I joined a story telling workshop. We learnt about an ancient Japanese tale by Ryunosuke Akutagawa called Kandata (The Spider's Thread). It was enlightening and an invaluable insight into Japanese folklore"Mr Greaves, who is a maths teacher at the school and has lived in Japan, is hoping to start a Japanese Club in 2021 to explore more aspects of Japanese language and culture with the whole Charters School community.
