The Benjamin Logan 7th and 8th grade Japanese Culture & Language students, High School Japanese 2 students, and Japanese Culture students had the opportunity to learn about writing in calligraphy recently.
The Japanese National Honor Society and the Japanese program invited calligraphy performers Sennunn-sensei and Saiunn-sensei, both from the Columbus area, to visit Benjamin Logan.
Saiunn-sensei brought stamps that she carved specifically for Benjamin Logan.
After a brief presentation of both regular form and cursive form of writing, the students enjoyed the challenge of writing the word that they chose from the list of words provided by the instructor’s sample writing.
In the end, each student looked over their works and decided what his/her best work was and brought it to the front of the classroom for a photo.
The event was organized by Dai Yamamoto, JNHS Supervisor.
In addition, each Benjamin Logan Board Member, Superintendent Dave Harmon, High School Principal Mark Butler, and Middle School Principal Rob Walter received his/her name in calligraphy, written by Senunn-sensei with a frame, as an appreciation of their supports to the JNHS and the Japanese program at their board meeting Monday.
