    • Dragon Head-Raising Day is a Chinese celebration that falls on the second day of the second month in the traditional lunar calendar. This year, it took place on February 27. In Chinese culture, the beginning of spring is represented by the Dragon Head-Raising Day.


      Recently, the Upper Primary students learnt about the nine dragons in their Chinese Culture class. As the lesson coincided with the Dragon Head-Raising Day, the Chinese teacher organised the students to make dragon steamed buns in the kitchen to reinforce their knowledge. It is not an easy job to mix flour with water, but the students were able to mix the sticky ingredients and knead the dough until it was smooth and not sticky. The students were encouraged to use the dough to create their own Chinese dragon. Check out our creative dragons!
