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.
