Past, Present, and Future: Celebrating Culture
The QAIS Chinese language department hosted a wonderful celebratory event for Chinese New Year. MYP students welcomed peers, faculty, and guests with heartfelt speeches and interactive and informative displays regarding language, eating rituals, artistic symbolism, and Asian customs. PYP students entertained the crowd with a lively song, and all were able to take part in an engaging carousel of activities, such as bamboo dancing, pitch pot, fan painting, print making, calligraphy, and the culinary art of making Chinese dumplings. Students and teachers, alike, adorned traditional clothing and enjoyed the amazing festivities. A special thank you goes out to the Qingdao Museum and Mrs. Wan for their contributions to the special day.
