Musubi Project

This was (and is) part of a wider project that has been set up to welcome the Japanese team to the Olympic Games in London, and it is also working to educate local children about the language, culture and sports of Japan. So far, iit has had a very positive impact. Musubi Project is being run in partnership with Loughborough University and is supported by the East Midlands Development Agency. It involves a huge range of activities and social events that bring in schools from across the region and introduce athletes to the local area. Termly Musubi days, for example, designed and run by South Wolds pupils, invite local students to participate in workshops and conferences related to Japanese culture – and encourage senior students to share their knowledge and experience with the juniors. South Wolds pupils have also designed an award-winning website to support the project – and have established an annual visit to the Olympic Training Centre in Tokyo.
