Today we finished our assembly with a grand unveiling for the school of the wonderful mural by the art club, with support of Damian Callan and Mrs Dong.
The mural represents our school’s special role as a bridge between Scottish and Chinese cultures as home to a Confucius hub.
It will hopefully be installed over the summer.
Before the midterm break P3/4 had a great time celebrating our Chinese Culture Week.
Activities they tried included calligraphy making fans and performing a fan dance at the first level Chinese culture celebration.
P7 Treated the School to a fantastic assembly of Chinese folk tales and songs and we even had a visit from a dragon this week.
Well done to all of P7 and their adult helpers.
P7 were back at the zoo this week for a Confucius talk and to see Pandas.
They had a great time.
Some of our P7s went on an after dark trip last Friday to see the chinese lanterns exhibit at the zoo.
They had a great time and saw some amazing sights.
We’ve received the following information from the Confucius institute.
