Year 1 Celebrate Chinese New Year - The Year of the Pig

7th February 2019

Here at the New School, celebrating diversity is central to our ethos. Chinese New Year is the perfect opportunity to celebrate our Chinese community.

This week Year 1 learned all about Chinese New Year and The Year of The Pig. The vibrant and fun lessons were supported and led by three of our parents.


The students  heard about traditional Chinese New Year customs and the Chinese zodiac. They listened to folk tales and got to make their own yummy New Year Dumplings! The students wore red clothes; the colour associated with good luck and the classroom was festooned with banners and senior student artwork. Great fun was had by all.
