Chinese New Year Celebration

The children enjoyed celebrating Chinese New Year at school.

Willy decorated the school with dragons and streamers to set the scene for the day’s festivities. Activities included making crafts, sampling special foods, putting on a play, singing songs in Mandarin and learning about the Chinese culture. We want to thank Sally for sharing all of this with us. Mary Lou prepared another splendid meal including Chop Suey, dumplings and the traditional New Year Nian Gao cake. We finished the lunch with fortune cookies and chocolate coins for good luck! We performed the skits and songs in the Community Hall for an audience of parents and friends, where all the students did a fabulous job. The year of the tiger is definitely off to a great start!
