MORE than 200 Year 6 pupils from 17 feeder primary schools have spent a week in Wrexham’s Ysgol Dinas Brân learning about Japan.
Ysgol Dinas Brân was awarded the International Award last year and hs links with more than 16 different countries, with Japan being one of them.
As many as 17 pupils travelled to Japan last year to develop links with a secondary school, staying with Japanese families.
Primary pupils were placed in groups to work alongside Year 7 pupils to help them integrate into their new surroundings, which for many will be their school in September.
Pupils experienced food tasting, calligraphy, textiles, dance, Taiko drumming and other activities.
The school has thanked Japan 21 – the society that supported the event.
Assistant headteacher Mark Hatch said: “It is a great opportunity for pupils from different years to work together and share their experience to help each other.
“They have learned about Japanese culture but have learned so much more too. The Africa week last year played a huge part in helping pupils settle here in Sept- ember and Japan week has been a huge success again this year.”
