Posted 02/16/2016 12:43PM
The children welcomed Chinese New Year celebrations with a special parade and Lion Dance. To build their awareness and appreciation of our host country's culture and further build our home-school partnership, each classroom hosted parents and grandparents to share stories and legends, and traditional crafts, food, and music. Children developed their confidence and linguistic skills through songs and poems, and their creativity and fine motor skills through painting, calligraphy and crafts. On the morning of 5 February, we brought it all together for the ECC Chinese New Year Parade - a celebration to share, sing, and scare away Nian for another year!
