Last Thursday was a special day at Chantrelll Creek. We celebrated Chinese New Year. We had an assembly in the afternoon. We were treated to many special performances . . . we heard someone play a flute like instrument, someone played a special harp instrument, and we saw a a mask dance where the performer changed their mask seven times! We also saw a fashion show of traditional Chinese clothing. The kindergarten class did a dragon dance and we saw a special dance called The Red Lantern Dance. Several of the girls from our class and the other grade 2 class were in it!
|Many of us dressed in red to celebrate this special day!|
Just before the afternoon assembly many of our parents made 5000 dumplings s in several kitchens and brought them to the school for the whole school- staff and students - to enjoy! They were delicious! Thank you to everyone who helped with this special treat!
|Mmmmm . . . loved those dumplings!|
|I don't think I could eat another bite!|
|Look what I made!|
|Happy New Year!|
