Chinese New Year Celebrations

Chinese New Year has been celebrated in style at Westholme this week.

We kicked off the celebrations with a special assembly at all of our sites. According to the Chinese Lunar Calendar, the coming year is the Year of the Rat, it is the first animal of the Chinese zodiac cycle.

During the assemblies, we looked at the positive attributes of the animal signs and we made connections with Eastern and Western culture.

Our Nursery and Pre School children enjoyed making lanterns and Chinese hats.

The children in Year 1 had lots of fun celebrating by taking part in a Chinese Banquet and tasting lots of traditional foods. It all looked delicious.

All of our students enjoyed a fabulous themed lunch which they thoroughly enjoyed!

The halls were decorated with beautiful Chinese lanterns which really helped to bring the atmosphere of the Orient to Westholme.
