Chinese New Year Celebrations at the Anglo

Miriam Williams, Subject Leader Mandarin: “Chinese New Year celebrations started on Monday 8th February this year. We have been celebrating in style at the Anglo with a Chinese themed menu in the canteen and traditional Chinese dance and tai ch’i performances in assemblies. As part of our distinctive international curriculum, Year 7 have been doing a range of Chinese related activities in each of their lessons during the week; such as making dumplings in Technology, stain glass window paper-cutting in Art, exploring traditional Chinese music and playing an authentic Erhu in Music, and making rockets in Science. Students have really enjoyed the opportunity to explore a different culture and celebrate the Year of the Monkey.”

Jody Gee, Co-Headteacher “Chinese New Year is always a special week at Anglo European, with the whole school focusing on aspects of the Chinese culture, language and traditions.”
