St Joseph's First School celebrate Chinese New Year of the Pig

Year 3 students from St Joseph’s First School celebrated the Chinese New Year on Tuesday by attending school in traditional Chinese costumes.

A statement from the Ministry of Education reads:

Year 3 children at St Joseph’s First School had lots of fun Tuesday 5th February to celebrate the start of the Chinese New Year. The pupils attended school in traditional Chinese costumes and shared their learning about China and the Chinese culture to the rest of the school in a special assembly. The school combined this initiative with Sustainable schools, ensuring that only reusable water bottles were used and plastic was avoided. They swapped their regular lunch for a delicious Chinese feast (special thanks to Birdie Café and Gib Maroc who provided oranges free of charge). Year 3 teachers would like to thank their lunch supervisors as well as parents/carers for supporting this day.Year 3 children at St Joseph’s First School had lots of fun Tuesday 5th February to celebrate the start of the Chinese New Year.
