This year our Halloween festivities took part at Hangzhou’s famous West Lake. Each teacher created a fun activity for students to take part in. Each class then went from activity to activity to play English games to win prizes and candy. Our finally of a potato sack relay race ended each class period with all students winning pens and calendars. I want to thank our staff, parents, and students for creating a wonderful weekend.
Our latest School event was our Farm Field Day. We spent a weekend at a beautiful farm near the Xi Xi Wetlands. Children got to learn all about the farm through 7 different events prepared by our teaching staff. We taught the names of the vegetables at the farm through vegetable races and a little incentive with a water gun. Children got to pick strawberries after a frog hunt in the strawberry patch. Each student was able to choose their own plant and prepare it in small stone pots. We had tank races with news paper tank wheels. Kids even got to make their own cookies and dumplings. We finished the day with huge relay races on our obstacle course with students, parents and teachers getting involved. The event went off spectacularly and all had a wonderful time.
