Chinese New Year

On Friday February 10th Cornwall Park School celebrated Chinese New Year. There were lots of activities happening throughout the day. In Room 21 we made paper lanterns and cherry blossom art. We also learnt how to write happy new year in Chinese calligraphy. Have a look at the photos to see what we got up to.

In the afternoon we were lucky enough to see a performance from a dragon and drums group. We got to see the lion dancing and being playful. He even stood on 2 feet to reach a hanging lettuce. After lunch some of the classes shared some performances. One of the grandmas did a tai chi dance with a sword.

We wish you a happy year of the rooster from everyone in Room 21


  1. Wow. I can see a lot of creativity in the cherry blossom art. Also, I'm so glad you had an opportunity to do some Chinese calligraphy - you guys are lucky to experience such activity. Your teacher must be pretty awesome!

  2. Kia ora Room 21

    Your lanterns look beautiful. What did you use to put your trees on the wall? What did you use to colour your trees? We made lanterns as well, do you want to see them?

    1. Hi Oscar,

      Thank you for your comment. Our trees have been stapled to the wall onto tissues, (achoo,) that is what we also used to make the cherry blossoms. We would love to see the lanterns that you made.
