Sherborne International celebrates Hanami
On Saturday 27 April, our Japanese students and guests enjoyed a special afternoon tea in the Principal’s office to celebrate Hanami – the popular traditional Japanese Spring Festival.
They then gathered for a photograph under the Cherry Blossom tree.
The Principal discussed with the students the importance of getting together, having a bit of fun and recognising and celebrating just one of the many different traditions from our students’ various countries. This was echoed in the Principal’s Whole School Assembly on Monday, where he talked about traditional British celebrations for the arrival of Spring.
Sherborne International’s Catering Team created special homemade cookies and cakes, using the white and pink blossom as inspiration. The students shared these with their friends in our boarding houses.
