Grade eight students at Rudolph Hennig got a crash course on calligraphy today (September 29).
The art of traditional Japanese writing is part of their Multicultural Day celebrations.
Students were taught to write their names on rice paper by representatives from the Japanese Association in Fort Saskatchewan.
"These are absolute extras that we couldn't do by ourselves," said Rudolph Hennig teacher and counsellor, Lori Nelson. "It's really great to have someone come to give them real first hand knowledge and understanding so it's really cool, we're really thankful."
The lesson ties in with their Social Studies curriculum where they learn about Japan and Japanese culture.
It's the fourth year Rudolph Hennig has held Multicultural Day.
