As in a Hitchcock’ movie – it all started with a volcanic eruption, and later the tension was only rising. Despite the fact that the school existed only in theory, we managed to organise ‘Japan in ZOO’, the Japanese Children’s Day in the Warsaw Zoological Garden, attended by several thousand people. Until now, we are eternally grateful for the support of the people who helped us then.
First students enter the school. At the beginning, there were only 15 students but, thankfully, the new of our school was spread and the number of students increased rapidly.
Interested in exchange of experiences, we are joined the Polish Association of Japanese Language Teachers. At that time, we didn’t even dream that our lecturer would become the Secretary General of this Association 2 years later!
The Embassy of Japan invites us to cooperation during Matsuri – a Japanese Culture Picnic. That cooperation, consisting in dressing the guests up in yukatas (summer kimonos), lasts to this day, and the number of volunteers helping at the stand grew from 2 to 25 people. The stand became one of the most popular stands at the event.
We organise the first Polish Nationwide Calligraphy Competition the finals of which took place during Matsuri. One year later, the competition turns into a European formula.
We introduce the e-learning platform. From now on, everyone has access to the material discussed during classes – there are no excuses if someone forgets about homework;)
Fully-fledged rebranding – we change our logo, website, and even our seat. We are only one step away from our dream to become the best school of the Japanese language in the world!
The Japan Foundation appreciates our work for the third time and provides us with a grant for the school library.
Our student, Dominik Grzelecki, delivers a speech at the International Oratory Competition of the Japanese Language for High School Students. We are so proud!
