The SIS Basel commemorated the Chinese New Year with a series of activities celebrating the Year of the Rabbit.
To begin the week, our younger students celebrated with story-telling and poetry activities followed by the creation of some exciting arts and crafts which ended up on display in the front entrance of the school. This was followed by our older students engaging in their first lesson of Chinese calligraphy. The challenge was real! Next, several classes of primary students learned the intricacies of the Bamboo Stick Dance led by Nanli Zhao, the Director of the Chinese School in Basel. To wrap up the week, some of our college students were able to enjoy some delicious traditional Chinese cuisine by making their own Chinese dumplings. All that partook commented on the deliciousness of the homemade food.
It was a great week enjoyed by all and left a fantastic impression of Chinese culture on all of our students. The SIS Basel would like to extend a special thanks to our management team member Mrs. Gaetan for organizing such a wonderful event.
