IB Primary Years Programme Update
February 2019 - Chinese New Year Celebration
Chinese Language Instruction
As an International Baccalaureate school, offering the Primary Years Program, Wade King students are exposed to both the Chinese language and Chinese culture. On Wednesday, February 20th, our school community celebrated Chinese New Year, or the Lunar New Year. This was an opportunity to deepen our understanding of this cultural tradition. We even learned how two families, who are connected to Wade King, celebrate. Here's to the Year of the Pig!
Happy New Year!
新年快樂 - xin nian kuai le
First Dragon Parade
Our Chinese New Year celebration began with Owen and Llyr introducting our program and the elder (our oldest) Chinese dragon. All of Mr. Cornelsen's students fit inside the elder dragon and students had to work as team to move the dragon down the aisle to the beat of our student percussionists playing our large Chinese drum, cymbals, and gong. This was followed by a video about Chinese New Year produced and narrated by our 5th grade students.
