A fine piece of work

Grade 9 student at the Western International School Shanghai Aiko Ishii Casas participated in the ITOEN Oi Ocha New Haiku Contest, which saw 1,862,954 haiku poems submitted from around the world.

Aiko’s work was selected and certified as “a fine piece of work”. She has taken part in the competition for the past five years, and has learned how to make haikus and express feelings through them. Her haiku was a simple story about how boiling water can bring warmth during the winter mornings in Shanghai.
