Four of our P5s pupils watched Newsround and were very interested in a report about litter. They decided that they would try to make a difference and spent their lunchtime gathering up all the litter that had blown below the fences in our P5-7 playground. They got a whole black bag full.
They have now asked if they can regularly look out for litter in both playgrounds. It is great to have young people who are proactive and look after the environment.
It was wonderful to see some of the P5 pupils and their parents/carers and family members at the Chinese Family Night last night.
Three workshops were provided to give everyone the opportunity to try mask painting, calligraphy and using chopsticks.
Everyone was then entertained with a martial arts display, some Mandarin songs and a traditional Chinese dance. It was lovely to see how much the children have learned from their Mandarin lessons and how much enjoyment they have had.
Special thanks to Mrs Ying Zhang who has worked with the pupils in P5, P6 and P7. She is returning to China in July and we wish her all the very best.
