In order to cultivate interest in the Chinese culture in our P1s and P2’s, we arranged for them to attend weekly Chinese calligraphy class.
Chinese New Year Celebration
This year, we celebrated Chinese New Year on the 8th of February with a concert. Besides enjoying songs and dance items, teachers and students enjoyed the surprise appearance of the Fortune god.
As an extension of our celebrations, students from all levels and background were given the opportunity to try their hands at Chinese calligraphy on 20th March, during their recess. The response was overwhelming.
Two groups of selected P4 and P5 students were given the opportunity to travel to Suzhou and Chengdu respectively. They immersed themselves in the rich culture of the natives, by visiting local attractions and getting a taste of the local school experience.

Chinese Creative Writing enrichment classes were organized during the June holidays to strengthen students’ writing skills. P4 to P6 students were exposed to different writing techniques and skills through the 10-session course.
