The Moon Lantern Festival or Mid-Autumn Festival is a popular harvest festival celebrated when the moon is at its fullest and brightest.
At Holy Family we will be celebrating the Moon Lantern Festival on Friday 29 September. Students are invited to wear traditional or red clothing.
The R/1JM and 5/6PA assembly will take place after recess at 11.30am and it will highlight cultural aspects of Moon Lantern Festival. Activities will include a lion dance, singing and sharing of cultural information. The winners of the Lantern Making Competition will also be announced at the assembly.
After assembly, students and families are invited back to their classrooms for a shared lunch. Students are encouraged to bring a plate of food that represents their culture. All families and members of the community are welcome to attend.
