For the third year, the Japanese cooking workshop for JET Programme participants was held at Marusan Comptoir Japonais (401 Notre-Dame Ouest), allowing departing JETs to be taught by a professional Japanese chef!
On May 25, JETAA Q/A and the Montreal JET Desk held this year’s First Nations First pre-departure workshop.
JETs gathered to celebrate the Japanese tradition of flower viewing. Picnicking under the cherry blossoms, participants were given the opportunity to meet members of the JET community.
Thank you to everyone who made it out to restaurant Nozy! The event was a huge success; with over 20 members attending the dinner, it’s safe to say we had quite the party. Video credits go to Francesca Abbondanza-Bergeron
JETAA Q/A members gathered for their first ever Bake-Off at The People’s Potato. They kindly let us use their kitchen for this event.
A big thank you to everyone who came to this year’s annual Shinnenkai! It was a success and we had the opportunity to thank last year’s executive committee and welcome in the new members for 2019. We would also like to extend a big thank you to Marusan for hosting us once again and providing us with delicious food and beverages.
The past few months the Montreal JET Desk along with JETAA Q/A members have been busy promoting JET to next year’s potential applicants.
An afternoon of snacks, games, and prizes was held on December 8th at the Argo bookstore to thank JETAA Q/A members who so generously gave their time at this year’s events.
For this month’s book club we delved into the sci-fi thriller Hybrid Child by Mariko Ouhara. We had a great turn out and the book generated discussions about technology, nature, and the human psyche.
On the evening of Friday October 12th, JET members got together to celebrate the return of this year’s Montreal JETs.
