Teda International School’s Cultural Bonanza

Hot on the heels of the school’s Cultures Fair, where children researched different ways of living from around the world before giving a presentation about their findings, was the annual foray into the local culture with the onset of Chinese Cultural Week. The school cafeteria was adorned with lanterns and other items to mark the upcoming New Year, which this time is represented by courage, loyalty and harmony as symbolized by the pig. Throughout the school, students were given opportunities to try their hand at many different traditional arts and crafts. Among the activities were Beijing opera mask making, calligraphy, sculpting steam buns into piglets and hedgehogs, a Chinese games assembly, and a Chinese drama play. It’s always heartening to see the children learning, and deepening their understanding of culture with such joy and enthusiasm. As we move into the break for spring festival it just leaves us to wish everyone a happy and prosperous New Year.
