Apr. 24, bilingual tanka reading and Origami at primary school in Montreal

Apr. 24, I presented an easy bilingual tanka reading at the 5 to 6 years old class at ECOLE JEAN GROU. After my presentation, we had an Origami time and made fluttering crane.

The pupils as well as the teacher for the class are young and beautiful. Due to the school rule, I cannot show their adorable faces. At the end of the class, everyone said goodbye by exchanging the Japanese word I taught them, "DAISUKI".

I would like to thank the headmaster and the teachers of the upper grades to have spared time for me to get the photos taken with me.

I was very glad to be able to meet the headmaster this year. I expressed my gratitude to her for giving me wonderful opportunity two years in a row.
