During Mandarin Club this term Simone (Chinese teacher ) taught the kids about the history of calligraphy in China and then showed them how to paint a panda with a bamboo shoot. She taught them how to hold the brush correctly and the brush strokes were strokes used to do Chinese characters. We have been getting about 10 students of all year levels on a average a week to Mandarin club. This term they have learnt basic greetings in Mandarin and about Chinese festivals such as the Dragon Boat Festival. Some of the paper cutting and other crafts students have created are on display in the school library if people want to have a look.
