Highlights from the JNHS Oshogatsu celebration and calligraphy performance


Senior Richard Wang explains the meaning behind their painting while his fellow peers hold up the artwork. The painting is performed every year and this year they decided to convey the message of growing up and maturing and essentially saying goodbye. This is due to the fact that many of the performers were seniors and used this as their farewell message.
