BROADWATER students got a taste of Japan as they took part in a themed day.

The children wore red and white to match the Japanese flag and saw a slide show of teacher Linda Wythe's trip to Japan when her nephew got married.

They got to see what houses, cemeteries, shops and even toilets, complete with "bum washers" as one student called them, were like over there.

The slide show was followed by a lunch of sushi and pork rolls, with some braving chopsticks, which were met with mixed reactions.

Parents and carers were also part of the day.

"The day is part of Education Week so we thought we would do a Japanese theme," principal Steve Curtin said.

"It was a great opportunity for the students to learn about another culture."
