Yr 11 Chinese Hot Pot Party

Yr 11 Chinese Hot Pot Party organised by the Mandarin class as an authentic cultural experience. The class designed their own ingredients list and planned the event – in Chinese. This emphasises our importance on learning ‘language through culture’. The Chinese mother-tongue students joined in and explained the hot pot tradition and how it is to be enjoyed, allowing them to introduce and share their own culture to others.

In the absence of so many external cultural experiences that we normally engage in, it is great to see the students participating in a rich and authentic experience within the classroom.
