P6 pupils really enjoyed their visit to the Digitial Arts Exhibition to celebrate Chinese New Year in the University of Ulster. Pupils experienced, through the use of digital media and Augmented Reality, the practices and traditions associated with the Spring Festival. These included a virtual visit to a Chinese Puppet Theatre, electronic paper cutting and moulding clay into Chinese Porcelain.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank our partners in the Confucius Institute for your kind invitation to today’s exhibition and we wish you a very Happy Chinese New Year of the Pig!
