Year 1 students learnt about Korean food and traditional Korean costumes. They presented the story of “Three Bears”. Year 3 children learnt about Italy by appreciating Baroque architecture in 17th Century and the ancient culture of Rome.
Year 6 students studied British drama as well as the Elizabeth I era of British history. Year 7 students knew more about India's unique cultural heritage through a Bollywood dancing performance.
The US is a multicultural country. Children from Year 9 learnt a few American words, which represented its culture such as “the Statue of Liberty”, “Obama”, “McDonald’s”, “cowboy”, “Spider Man” and “Broadway”. Their research also gave them insight into the most powerful country in the world.
Our Cultural Day celebration performances on February 13 were a wonderful mixture of Chinese and Western traditions. The dragon and lion dances were the highlight. At the end of the ceremony, our Superintendents and Co-Principals gave us a short speech about the New Year and wished every one joy and prosperity in the year of the Goat.
ECE also organised a Red Market to celebrate the Chinese New Year. Everyone enjoyed the delicious food prepared by the parents. A mother even brought the cooker from home to cook rice balls on the spot! With the support of our parents, we enjoyed a wonderful day together.
