Culture Workshops

At Janus Academy, we believe in the value and importance of being multi-lingual & multi-cultural in an increasingly globalized world. It is our firm belief that students should learn how to communicate well with others (i.e. not just be a walking dictionary), and that true communication goes beyond words and requires a deeper understanding of culture, tradition, social norms, etc.

We therefore offer bite-sized Culture Workshops every weekend, covering a wide range of interests, including popular ones such as origami, anime, and much more! Register your interest using the links below or contact a member of our team for more details today.

 

JAPANESE CULTURE WORKSHOPS

Kirigami & Origami Maths – available for kids

Origami is an enjoyable activity that helps your child develop hand-eye coordination and attention to detail from a very young age. It also encourages peer support and fosters relationship building. It is used as an innovative way to support and enhance geometrical reasoning and mathematical learning in Japan. And now you can let your child experience this artful mathematics workshop in Janus Academy!
