Japanese Olympics

'Gambatte!' 'Go for it!' at the Margaret River Montessori School Japanese Olympics

Who’s been loving the Olympics? We have 🙋🏽🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏻‍♂️... and our students are looking forward to something extremely exciting next week ~ their very own ‘Japanese Olympics’.


All children will join in the fun as they sample games, races and creative experiences in a carousel of different Japanese activities. We’re talking Mukade Kyoso (centipede race), Origami Basketball, Medal making and maybe even some Sumo Wrestling!


This event, organised by our LOTE teacher Karen, compliments our fantastic Japanese Language and Culture program. Our students have already enjoyed learning many Japanese games, songs and Olympic related phrases such as ‘Gambatte!’ (which means ‘Go for it!’).


Date: Tuesday 17th August (weather permitting).
