 It was a wonderful event at the school, and it was the first time that the school had hosted such an exhibition. All the teachers, students, parents and the visitors were very impressed, they suggested that similar exhibition should be held at school.
 I was worried about the small space but it served the purpose well and the problems I had was about the poor lighting system. I hope to hold exhibitions in future, I have learnt many lessons.
Once again I would like to express my gratitude to Royal Education Council, and
Hamada Children’s Museum of Art , Japan.
