About the Day

Students will be shown some photos and You Tube clips about Obento. Words like いただきます, ごちそうさま、おいしい will be taught and practised.

Then, in pairs with a student from your own school, students will make an obento. They will be given a small box filled with rice and they will need to use a variety of Japanese tsukemono to design an obento. They could write their name, theme it for a birthday or Japanese festival, write the Kanji for love or peace in nori (Kanji would be displayed for students to copy).


Students will show their final product to the judges, prizes will be given for most creative and reflective of Japanese culture as well as balance of nutrition asked to briefly say why they choose the items. All students will receive a certificate of participation. Judges will be Japanese parents from Westminster and the Home Ec teachers.


To keep this event as enjoyable, educational, spread the knowledge and foster collaborative skills between the students as we will make up teams of 6 to 7 students comprising of 2 schools.



Free but only open to JLTASA Members.


8 students maximum per school

We have places for 56 students each session so we are asking you at this stage to limit your group to 8, but please indicate on the registration form if there are any requests for more as some schools may send less students.

Registrations close: Wednesday 25 October 2017.
