One Thousand Paper Cranes

One Thousand Paper Cranes

"If you fold a thousand cranes, you'll be granted one wish" (old Japanese legend)

A brave young girl is still remembered today for her determination and dedication to create a thousand origami cranes. Sadako Sasaki's hope kept her spirits high while battling Leukaemia in the aftermath of the atomic bomb. Her bravery lives on in the form of The Children's Monument commemorating all of the children killed in the bombing of Hiroshima. The crane acts as a symbol of peace, everyday paper cranes are added to the memorial by young people from all over the world.

SUAS will be working to create their own Origami pieces in tutor time this week. 

What would your one wish be?
