Last week, students celebrated their love of reading by dressing like their favorite character for Book Character Day. Kindergarten and Junior School students enjoyed reading buddy sessions in which older students read books to younger students. The Middle and High School also participated by choosing free dress or also dressing like their favorite book character by donating 200 yen. All funds raised on this day will be donated to Room to Read. This organization raises funds to build libraries and provide books in schools in developing countries. Of particular importance to them is the support of education for girls.
