Last week, a group of Upper 4 and Lower 5 students went to Lasswade High School to watch a Chinese singing and dancing performance by Nanjing Little Red Flower Art Troupe, to celebrate the Chinese New Year.
We enjoyed the dance about a girl carrying fresh lotus fruits, and the colourful and beautiful costumes worn. We loved that each performance had a story and especially liked the girl playing a unique Chinese instrument called a Pipa (pee-pa). We were surprised by the high pitched Suona solo.
We were amazed and inspired by the talents of these Chinese children. The Chinese culture is so rich and we are keen to learn more about it in the future.
