Our Chinese Students say: Happy New Year!

With the celebrations of the Chinese New Year now underway, our Chinese students in Alex presented a very informative assembly for us on Wednesday morning. Amber, Lucy, Cici, Larissa, Lele and Charlotte shared lots of interesting facts about China with us. They included interesting places to visit, the art of paper cutting and the Lunar calendar. They even taught us all some phrases to say in Chinese. We were all hugely impressed with the girls – well done! Our younger Chinese students Bella, Ann and Abigail joined the girls at the end of the assembly for a group photograph. Many of our classes are learning about the Chinese New Year in their classes too. They have made lanterns, dragon masks and had some typical Chinese food – some (PS Upper) even learned to eat with chopsticks! We wish all our Chinese friends in Alexandra College a very Happy New Year.

 

J6W Assembly – Celebrating Difference

The J6W assembly this week focused on the theme of difference. They talked and acted their way through the different types of intelligence (Howard Gardener) and celebrated difference in our school and in our world. They did a marvellous job in explaining how we all learn differently. The assembly ended with the girls reciting a poem called “Difference” written by one of their classmates, Elsa Mooney. Great job, girls!
