We enjoyed tasting Chinese Foods, learning more about the Chinese Zodiac, and other Chinese customs, and made our own willow plates, dragons and pandas!
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.
We’ve received the following information from the Confucius institute.
