Through different hands-on activities of the theme/sub-theme: Chinese New Year, the National Day, and Mid-Autumn Festival, K1 students felt the joy and festive vibe. In the theme ‘The World is so Big’, K2 students learnt that Hong Kong was part of China and specialities of China and tried to observe Hong Kong’s geographical location on a map of China.

Besides, students made and tasted different Chinese food, for example, Tang Hulu, dumplings and Tang Yuan. The Greenfield book ‘Happy Holidays’ cultivated students love to their hometowns.
