On Thursday, May 29, 24 sixth-grade students from Janney Elementary school in northwest Washington will make a presentation on Japan in the JICC auditorium. As this year’s school adopted by the Embassy of Japan through the DC Public School’s Embassy Adoption Program, the students will showcase their knowledge of Japan for Embassy staff, and the public. They will use the knowledge they have gained through visits to their school by Embassy staff members, and give a one-hour presentation that focuses on the history, culture, geography and technology of Japan. Led by their teacher Ms. Laure Hunter, the students will be one-day teachers of Japan and Japanese culture.
The Embassy Adoption Program is a program administered by the District of Columbia Public Schools and the Washington Performing Arts Society. The program facilitates a cultural exchange between the diplomatic community and students from fifty elementary schools in our nation’s capital. More than 35,000 students and 103 embassies have participated in the program since 1974.
Through the Embassy Adoption Program, students have the opportunity to take part in a Mini-United Nations General Assembly, visit the embassy that has adopted their school, and showcase their newly found knowledge through a public presentation.
