From Mrs. Helen Shen, Nest Mandarin Coordinator
In 2020, the Mid-Autumn Festival will fall on 1st October. It is the same day as China National Day. This week, children and teachers at Wellington College Bilingual Tianjin celebrated the Mid-Autumn Festival, a traditional Chinese festival occurring when the moon is at its fullest and brightest point of the year. The Co-Teachers taught our children the stories behind the Festival in their Mandarin classes. In addition to reading stories, the children sang songs, tried various activities and had an assembly about Mid-Autumn Festival, they even had the chance to see and wear traditional costumes.
In a safe and enjoyable atmosphere, children of all ages explored activities and games planned by the teachers in this culture week of Mid-Autumn Festival.
