The Hua Xian Chinese Society officially launches it’s new Chinese language school which will provide tuition in Mandarin Chinese for children and adults. The school has been project that has been in planning for many years with the local Chinese community to help those of Chinese heritage and the wider community learn about Chinese culture.
Visitors to the opening enjoyed fun activities: Lion Dancing, Martial Arts and children could make paper lanterns, flags and friendship bracelets. They also tried tasty Chinese and Indian food including traditional Mooncakes to celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival.
A photographic exhibition was also at the event to mark the end of the Shanghai Expo 2010 in China with leaflets explaining the rich and diverse culture of ancient and modern China.
Big thanks to all the staff, volunteers and the people who came down to take part in the event. We look for forward to many of the children returning as students in the coming weeks!
We would also like to extend a special thanks to the Manchester People’s Republic of China Consulate for their support.
