This month our kids actively participate in different cultural learning activities so to celebrate both the Chinese New Year and the Lantern Festival. As we know that 2017 is the year of the Fire Rooster ‘Ding You’(丁酉)， also the animal year of the people under the zodiac sign of Rooster. Therefore, at this week’s Chinese Cultural Experience Workshop we have our students to make paper rooster lanterns. After the Confucius Classroom teacher from Bendigo Senior College quickly show them some beautiful samples and simply demonstrate how to make the lantern step by step, our children just can’t wait to make a quick start on their own D.I.Y. creation. Actually some creative ideas from them actually are very inspiring, for example they make a bow tie for the chook, and copy Donald Trump’s hair style for the rooster. We are so proud of what we have made and created while we have great fun.
不积跬步，无以至千里；不积小流，无以成江海(A journey of thousands of miles may not be achieved through accumulation of each single step, just as the enormous ocean may not be formed without gathering every stream). Come to join us and make your small single step on every Monday. Step after step the ladder is ascended, and your written Chinese is developed.
