Chinese Celebrations

Chinese Celebrations

Tomorrow we look forward to a wonderful morning of Global Learning as we celebrate Chinese New Year with Mr Cui and invited guests. Mr Cui has an exciting programme of entertainment planned, immersing us in Chinese culture. Pupils from P4, P5 and P6 will perform, as well as professional Chinese Artists, including musicians, dancers and Sichuan Opera, face changers!

To assist with P5 and P6 girls’ costume changes and P6 Kong Fu demonstrations all those pupils in P5 and P6 performing, may wear their PE uniforms.

In attendance will be 33 former P7 Pupils, (and their Secondary School Principals) whom we welcome back to receive  their YCT Mandarin Level 1 certificates. In addition we will have representatives from SWC Confucius Hub, Mrs J. McDowell, Mrs L Beatty and Mrs F Cole.

We will take photos to share here with you, so watch this space!

The pupils’ enthusiasm and enjoyment for learning Chinese Mandarin is always very  evident during lessons but to hear the group sing, recite and dance so confidently for a large audience was truly magnificent! Well done to all!

There were special performances from our Chinese teachers Miss Yan and Ms Candice who recited a W.B. Yeats poem “When You are Old” in Chinese Mandarin. Miss Yan also played the Chinese Hulusi instrument.
