To celebrate the end of term, the students from Year 3-6 took part in a competition, designing a Japanese style Bento box to promote healthy eating at school.

A traditional Bento box is a single portion take-out or home-packed meal common in Japanese cuisine. The box usually holds rice or noodles, fish or meat and has pickled or cooked vegetables.

Students were incredibly creative in making their Bento boxes with pandas, Pokémon and sea creatures featuring in the designs.

Students from Year 3-6 learn Japanese with a specialist languages teacher for 40 minutes each week.
