On Friday the 2nd of March we had the opportunity to celebrate Chinese New Year as a whole school. It was such a fantastic experience to celebrate in our red clothes to represent good luck in the Chinese culture or out awesome traditional Chinese Dress. Our wonderful new Mandarin teacher organised an exciting parade. We were able to hear information about Chinese New Year, watch an epic Dragon performance, see the extension Mandarin students sing and dance together and show off our great outfits.
After lunch, we also had a special Mandarin teacher come to our class and teach us how to make traditional Chinese lanterns. We worked on paper folding and cutting skills with this activity and had a great time.
Check out the pictures to have a taste of the fun we had celebrating as a school community.
A special thanks to the families who came to celebrate with us.
