As part of the Sakura Cherry Tree Project which is formed by the Japanese private sector supported by Japanese government, NCW has received a cherry blossom tree to plant on college grounds!

To celebrate the planting, staff and students gathered over lunchtime to celebrate all things Japanese – culture, music, language and food! The event was opened by Roman’s welcome speech in English, followed by Alejandro welcoming all in Japanese!

On offer was learning how to Origami, being taught some Japanese by Alejandro and Roman, finding out about Anime and Judo, and sampling foods such as sushi, matcha tea and lychee juice!

We are really excited to see the tree grow and reveal it’s beautiful blossom each year.
