30 May is the date for this year's Chinese Dragon Boat Festival “端午节 duan wu jie”. Its importance has been highlighted in our curriculum for both academic and culture reasons.
Normally students learn about the Chinese Dragon Boat Festival from the textbook and video clips. This year we held the class in the School House kitchen and the 4th year class learned about the festival tradition and language by preparing and sharing typical festival food “粽子zong zi” together. This is exactly how a family would celebrate the festival in China!
Our boys absolutely loved it!
