Last Friday, we celebrated another amazing Moon Lantern Festival! The moon lanterns students have created this year have been the best ones yet!
The assembly ran by 4RG, 2 IB and 2TD focused on the significance of this important event for our Vietnamese and Chinese students and their families.
They beautifully sang a song in Vietnamese with the help of Ms Hong. She also choreographed a dance. The assembly finished with a bang! The lion dance! This year we had a lioness. Ms Nicosia and Ms Battifuoco did a very good job mimicking a lion’s movements while Ms Quigley played the Fat man 😃
Happy Tea Trung Thu everyone!
This week’s Language of the Week is Krio. Krio is the most widely spoken language in Sierra Leone ( West Africa). It is mainly derived from English but has influences from other African languages.
Shirley ( 1JM) and Anne-Marie’s (2SB) families speak it at home. Shirley’s family shared with 1JM a lot of information about Sierra Leone.
This term we are starting with a language spoken by many of our students’ families: Tagalog. Tagalog is spoken as a first language by a quarter of the population of the Philippines and as a second language by the majority.
Students from 2IB and 2TD have prepared an iMovie to be showed at their assembly this Friday.
Hope to see many of you there!
