Along with the weather, the festive Chinese New Year atmosphere at Yew Wah International School of Rizhao is also getting warmer each day.
Primary students created bright Chinese New Year stickers during the Chinese Studies course. The prayers on these decorations all wished for good luck in 2021.
Yew Wah courses combine the best of the East and West. The Chinese Studies course contains the essence of Chinese culture, touching upon history, art and customs. The students not only gain traditional Chinese cultural knowledge in the classroom, but also participate in various related activities.
The children of Early Childhood Education (ECE) used their eager little hands to pinch out plum blossoms with playdough. In Chinese culture, the plum blossom, which can survive the coldest winter, represents tenacity. It is also an auspicious flower to announce the coming of spring and good luck.
What made this Chinese New Year especially warm was the ‘guardian angel’ activity organised by our Chinese teachers. The pieces of paper with students' names were shuffled. Each student drew a paper, and took care of the named person as his/her guardian angel secretly in the following days. The result of the draw will be kept secret until the Chinese New Year Concert.
In the coming days, if you find an extra orange on your desk, or if your lost hat finds its way back into your locker, don't be surprised. Maybe it’s your guardian angel at work.
