Fukuyama High School Animal Therapy Sheep “Mofuo”
The animal therapy sheep “Mofuo” is a sheep that has been raised at the school since 2020 to help keep students mentally healthy during the corona crisis. Proceeds from the workshop will be donated to feed the growing Mofuo and challenge sustainable animal breeding. In this initiative, the students took the lead in everything from grasping the current situation of the hotel, event planning to sales promotion activities, and running the workshop on the day. Saint-Clair tried to teach students how to create interesting projects with free thinking, teamwork in project management, and how to generate sustainable money.

Fukuyama Municipal Fukuyama Junior and Senior High School Educational Research Department Teacher Chika Nishida’s Thoughts
Using a needle to create a ball (sphere) from wool felt seems difficult, but once you get into it, it’s surprisingly fun. The students were more dexterous than I expected, which surprised me. When I saw the finished work, I thought, “This is the workshop, and I can provide the guests of Anchor Hotel with an enjoyable time as a memory of their stay.” And let’s use the profits to feed Mofuo! So, with the support of Saint Clair, we decided to hold the event. The corona misfortune has decreased the opportunities for school events and life experiences. However, I am grateful for the opportunity to enrich the school life of the students through this activity. Rather than saying, “I can’t do it,” I would be happy if they learned how to contribute to society by coming up with ideas and working on their own problems while having fun with their friends.
Sun Clair Co., Ltd. Learning Cafe manager Maki Azuma’s thoughts I am very grateful for the opportunity to let high school students know about the hotel industry, which they probably don’t know about, and the charm of Fukuyama, which I want local people to know about. Originally, we were planning to ask you to plan specific services such as accommodation plans, but after repeated dialogues, we thought that it would be possible to connect themes that are more familiar to the students themselves with the circular economy. connected to planning. As a company and as an adult in this town, I would be happy if, through this initiative, you could feel that the origin of the idea is surprisingly close, and the importance of having fun and trying things out.
