'Chinese New Year is a very special time for the Chinese community which is why this year we decided to hold a pupil-led celebration of our own. Our event began with a presentation and included drama and musical performances tracing Chinese history. It was wonderful to see the pupils grow in confidence as they rehearsed on stage and delivered these brilliant performances to the school.
Following this presentation in the theatre, everyone was invited to the Canon Perfect Centre for a series of workshops, an art exhibition, and traditional Chinese food. In this second part of the event, Chinese pupils taught others the art of calligraphy, paper-cutting and lantern-making. The enthusiasm and dedication from pupils made this event a memory we will all cherish.'
