重陽敬老節活動

學校準備了九九重陽敬老節的相關活動。學校準備了應景的菊花,茱萸,重陽糕,還有幼菊泡的茶,介紹了重陽節始於漢朝的歷史故事,農曆九月九日為重陽節,因九與久同音,故此節日也訂 為敬老節,象徵長長久久。同學們也學會了怎麼給長輩奉茶。此次活動開放給一到四年級的同學參加,針對他們的中文程度設計內容,讓活動參與更踴躍。

This Week (4 of 30)

Teacher Appreciation Day

Double Ninth (Chong Yang) Festival (Grandparents Day)

School prepared event for introducing to our students on the history of the Double Ninth Festival, which is also known as the Grandparents Day. Students were told on the history for how this festival came in place. The festival is celebrated on September 9th on Lunar calendar with chrysanthemums wine (we used tea to substitute) and Chong Yang cake, which were shown to the students. Students also learned how to properly serve tea to elderly using Chinese. This is also a day we celebrate longevity, because the number 9 has the same sound as long, therefore it is also a day for embracing the importance of respecting the elderly. This event was designed for 1st to 4th graders, we had great feedback and participation from the students.
