Moon Lantern Festival

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!

Language of the week: Krio ( Sierra Leone)

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.

Language of the week: Tagalog

Kumusta ka,

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!

Paalam!
