Renison’s Sakura Japanese Language School Celebrates 10th Anniversary

Renison sign with Sakura on either side.

When we think about a typical Saturday afternoon for a Renison student, we might think of late-risers getting up for lunch in the Renison cafeteria. On Saturday afternoons, however, instead of young adults strolling through the atrium, you may see a crowd of young children. They are getting ready to participate in the Sakura Japanese Language School, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. Since April of 2020, Sakura students have been studying online and this milestone, like many over the past year, was marked by a special online event last weekend.

Walking in two worlds

Renison Social Development Studies (SDS) 2016 alumna Jaydum Hunt is an accomplished Master’s student, studying at the University of Waterloo in Industrial Organizational Psychology. While at Renison, she specialized in Individual Well-being and Social Work as part of her degree in SDS. Jaydum’s original plan was to pursue Social Work, but after being accepted to the program, and taking a year off, her path took her in a different, more personal, direction. Her undergraduate degree was completed while she was a mother to one, and she is now completing a Master’s degree as a mother of two!
