SLIS campus was full of joy today, with a series of activities, such as making dumplings, paper cutting, writing couplets, guessing riddles, etc. It intended to warm up the atmosphere for the Chinese New Year. Students, parents and teachers gathered together to celebrate the Spring Festival through singing and dancing. All classrooms were decorated with balloons, ribbons and spring couplets. All teachers joined different classes at the invitation of their students. SLT team, including School Director Ms. Luka Liu, Vice School Director Cui Gang, Founding Principal Neil Bunting, and PYP Coordinator Elmer Reyes, also came to different grades to celebrate the Year of the Pig, offering their Chinese New Year blessings to teachers and students.
Poetry is considered as treasure contained with Chinese culture, and the ancient people used poems to express their aspiration and emotion. The 2nd SLIS Chinese Poetry Contest was hosted on January 25, which was among many other events for SLIS Chinese Culture Month. Students and teachers participated in the contest with great enthusiasm.
While the year of Dog is about deliver the blessing for the past year, the year of Pig brings the spring blossom for the New Year. In 2018, SLIS has continued to make great progress. With the joy of a harvest season, we expect to make even greater achievement in 2019.
