2017 Chinese New Year Celebrations with Our Feeder Schools
During the week from 23rd to 28th January 2017, our Chinese Hanban teachers Jun Meng and Ting Hou, went to eight of our feeder primary schools to celebrate Chinese Lunar New Year with the pupils and teachers. They delivered assemblies telling the traditions and taboos of how and why Chinese people celebrate Chinese Lunar New Year and offered workshops on Chinese paper cutting and lantern making for the pupils. They were warmly welcomed by the schools and the pupils were extremely enthusiastic.
Pupils and teachers learnt how to say 'Happy Chinese New Year' in Chinese with the right gestures and experienced the Chinese Lunar New Year culture by immersing into Chinese New Year songs and music, Chinese food and Chinese handcrafts. The teachers said it was a valuable experience for the pupils and they all enjoyed the day.
