Chinese New Year at St Joseph’s
On Tuesday we had celebrations in school for Chinese New Year. Yifan, our Mandarin tutor, arranged for four of her colleagues from the Confucius Institute to come and perform an amazing display of traditional Chinese mime and dance for us. We were all completely captivated, especially by the mysterious mask changing dance! Nobody could work out how the mask change happened so quickly each time! We loved it!
After the performances, the Primary Five children went up to the classrooms to take part in a workshop of activities including dressing up in traditional Chinese costumes, using chopsticks, print making and dragon making. It was a wonderful day!
