Egg-cellent day at AIS!

On Friday April 6, Aichi International School held two springtime events. The kindergarten held its annual cherry blossom picnic in Nijigaoka Park, where parents and students wrapped up warm for lunch under the cherry blossoms. Then the kindergarten students headed back to school for an egg hunt, before heading home for the weekend.

The elementary school students’ egg hunt began after an explanation of the significance of “Good Friday,” and an overview of what Easter means. Students then headed back to the classroom for egg painting and dyeing, as well as the making of Easter baskets in which to put their eggs.

In the hall, students designed protective packages for eggs so that these packages could be dropped from the second floor onto the first floor, without the eggs breaking. Students brought in recyclable materials, and produced padding, parachutes, and safety devices in attempts to prevent their eggs from cracking. By the end of the day, the school was once again a clean, beautiful environment, and all students went off to enjoy their Easter weekends having had a fun learning experience. — MARK REED
