Immersion Day

Platypus Prep, Year 1 and Year 2 classes had an Immersion Day to celebrate Chinese Culture. We were open-minded to trying new things and participated in a range of fun activities including painting designs on fans, practicing our Chinese writing and numbers, making a yummy edible teacup, colouring a Rat for Year of the Rat and playing some Chinese games.

Our favourite activity was leading our partner, who was dressed as a Chinese Lion, by playing a drum. Miss Chen demonstrated how to make Fried Rice and we got to taste some, the students all agreed it was delicious!

At the end of the day we watched a Dragon Boat Race then reflected together and thanked our teachers and teacher aides for organising the Immersion Day. Students got to take the items they made to show their families.

We had a wonderful time celebrating and can’t wait for Semester Two!
