Sri Lanka Karuta Session

We are going to hold a report session on the first Sri Lanka ‘Karuta’ Project completed in Galle last October. Kauta is a traditional Japanese card game with an educational theme such as geography, literature.

We, a team of 6 Japanese visitors, travelled to Sacred Heart Junior School on their Children’s Day and helped the grade 5 girls create their original version of karuta cards themed around Japan and Sri Lanka.

They also had fun playing karuta using their own cards. On the session you will not only learn about our project but also have a chance to play karuta by using the cards created by the girls in Galle.

Have a fun playing karuta on coming weekend!
