Over the last 2 weeks we have been embracing our multicultural community and highlight our mandarin studies by celebrating the Chinese New Year. This has been in the form or workshops, shows, trips and our usual Mandarin lesson.
or the last 2 weeks we have been fortunate enough to schedule in a tour for many of our students around China Town. They learnt about the rich history and even got to visit an authentic Chinese restaurant to taste the cuisine. In school we have been running calligraphy workshops, incorporating the Mandarin language and have even been able to put on some dumpling cookery classes.
he highlight of the celebrations was our annual Chinese New Year show. We invited the Southbank Confucius Institute who impressed our audience with authentic dancing, musical instruments and an impressive display of weapons. It was a fantastic opportunity for many of our students learning Mandarin to experience the culture.
A big thank you must go to Mr Bensley and the Modern Foreign language department who have made this all possible providing an exciting couple of weeks to celebrate the New Year in style.
Happy New Year 新年快乐！
