Mid-Autumn Festival Celebrations
Full moon, big moon,
Reunion and Celebration of Mid-Autumn Festival.
Along with the songs, SSIS kick off the Mid-Autumn Festival celebrations. The Chinese departments from preschool to senior school have planned a variety of interesting activities for students to learn and appreciate the tradition custom and cultural significance of the Mid-Autumn Festival. Students had the opportunities to perform on the stage, taste moon cakes, make moon cakes, and guess Lantern Riddles with their friends.
I believe all students enjoyed learning and experiencing the Chinese traditional festival.
