Students from across the school both learn and celebrate Chinese New Year, welcoming in Year of the Pig.
Sharing the ethos of a local school with a global outlook, international students from Hong Kong and China delivered a presentation in assembly all about the holiday.
We learned that beyond the cute image of piglets, the pig in the context of Chinese New Year is regarded as representing luck, good fortune and general prosperity.
It also symbolises a hard-working, peace-loving and truthful person. Throughout the school, students have celebrated and learned about Chinese culture this week, with a few of their activities highlighted below.
Celebrating Chinese New Year with Mrs Shi, her class enjoyed an evening at her home making Chinese dumplings…and later enjoyed Chinese pizza for Spring Festival!
