Dolls’ festival fun in Early Learning

Our youngest learners have enjoyed exploring aspects of the Japanese Hinamatsuri festival.

Early Learning Language Educator Haruko Watson introduced the children to aspects of this popular Japanese event.

They carried out craft activities in the Garrawan classroom, and enjoyed the display of Hina-Ningyou dolls.

Hinamatsuri (雛祭り), also called Dolls’ Day or Girls’ Day, is a religious (Shinto) holiday in Japan, celebrated on 3 March of each year.
