This Monday morning, saw a Chinese New Year Assembly performed by Hawthorn and Poplar. They shared the story of the Monster Nian and invited all of the children from the school to join in. Maple and Walnut made their wonderful Rooster pictures; Beech and Holly showed us their dancing dragons; Larch and Rowan presented their fashion design by using Chinese red and patterns; Cedar and Birch made a big family feast by putting everyone around a circular table, representing the meaning of ‘complete and altogether’ by using the Chinese word 圆 (Circle); Yew and Aspen explained about the Luna Calendar and the 12 zodiac animals. More over, there were songs and music performed by the talented children. We even tried to greet to each other in Mandarin: 新年快乐！春节好！Have a wonderful new year.
