The dumpling workshops are held in the staff room. Prior to starting the workshop, the Chinese teacher explains to students that ‘making dumplings is considered very good luck. Dumplings signify that wealth and treasure will come to you’. After showing the ingredients of making beef and vegetable dumplings, the teacher demonstrates the technique of making different styles of dumplings such as sun flower and gold fish. All students then have a chance to form and sample finished dumplings.
The highlight of the workshop is of course tasting the products of their effort. The juicy dumpling made by our kids definitely taste better than anything mums buy in the supermarket, store or restaurant. They feel like a rock star when they gaze upon the unique dumplings with personal style. The dumpling making activity is fun and satisfying, and it brings so much joy and laughter to our students.
