Chinese Department


Spring Beckons!

Comment 0

With the Chinese New Year falling on Feb 5th, CISM students learnt more about the Chinese culture in this 2-week long Spring Festival.




Chinese dragons are a symbol of China’s culture, and they are believed to bring good luck to people, therefore the longer the dragon in the dance, the more luck it will bring to the community. While we only got to watch a lion dance in CISM, both Grade 3 and ES1 students got to make their own paper Dragons.





They made papercuts with Pig, as it’s the Year of the Pig in the Chinese calendar this year.


They also got to be creative in making and designing their own angbaos or red envelopes. Traditionally, only married couples gave angbaos as a form of blessings. Therefore, students got to write messages of gratitude to their loved ones.
