Chinese Immersion Day
To celebrate Chinese New Year and give our students a better understanding of Chinese culture and language, a Chinese Immersion Day was organized by MFL for our year 8 students.
On the day, the students learnt how Chinese people celebrate their biggest festival and the 8 different cuisines styles throughout China. They also learnt how the Chinese writing system works and even tried using brushes to do Chinese calligraphy! The chopstick competition was another interesting activity on the day.
In period 5, the students watched a performance given by the professionals from London in the Sinden Theatre. There were various performances in the show including the traditional Chinese musical instruments performance, Chinese folk dance as well as some exciting Martial Arts show.
