2023 Distinctive Educational Activities ②：The Tanabata party was held.
On July 6 (Thursday), a Tanabata party (Star Festival) was held using class seminar time. It is a custom during the Tanabata Festival to write wishes on strips of paper and hang them on bamboo leaves. Bekka students learned about the history and meaning of this custom in class seminar, and made Tanabata decorations such as origami cranes and drawstrings while communicating in Japanese with Bekka student assistants, undergraduate students. The students earnestly folded origami papers, wrote their wishes in Japanese, and enjoyed decorating with their friends. Without wearing masks during the event this year, each class of Bekka students seemed to spend a pleasant time together relaxingly.
[Bekka Student Assistants are Takushoku University undergraduate students who interact with Bekka students by assisting class teachers and Bekka students during class seminars and events held every Thursday. (Official volunteer activities of the Bekka, Takushoku University)]
