Students enjoy Chinese New Year Extravaganza

On Saturday 2 February, 21 of our students enjoyed a fantastic treat visiting Altrincham Garrick Playhouse theatre to watch the ‘Chinese New Year Extravaganza’.

Accompanied by Mr Harrison, Mrs Kirkham, Ms Brocklehurst and Mr Towers they enjoyed a unique and exciting cultural show featuring a team of performers from Jinlong Culture & Performing Arts Ltd showcasing amazing Chinese performing arts. From the daring stunts of Chinese acrobatics, to an energetic Kung Fu performance to the magnificent 15-metre long Dragon Dance and more.

All our students thoroughly enjoyed the show, getting involved with enthusiasm. The visit not only increased their own cultural awareness of China itself but it has also helped them understand the global dimension of the real world.

Tomorrow, 4th February, is Chinese New Year and 2019 is the ‘Year of the Pig’ 过年好 (Guò nián hǎo). The trip was kindly organised by our Mandarin teacher, Mrs Kirkham and funded by the Swire Chinese Language Foundation.
