On Wednesday 10th February we celebrated Chinese New Year together as a whole school. We baked traditional Bao buns and made up stories for their chosen shapes. During the afternoon we watched and enjoyed a professional Lion Dance whilst listening to the drummers beat their rhythms. We set off firecrackers, (well balloons!) wore our Zodiac face masks, we danced in the hall and listened to stories. But most of all we were together as a school. We could only welcome a limited number of parents to watch because of Covid 19.
Many thanks must go to our Mandarin teacher, Kru Khing for organising such a great day, but also to his helpers Ms Peng and Mr Tom. I think my favourite part were the dances performed by the students. It was interesting to see the different aspects of Thai culture that weaves so clearly through this most Chinese of traditions. This cultural exchange is exactly why we love International Education.
