Kindergarten

February 11th-15th

This week, we celebrated the Lunar New Year by making lanterns and creating Chinese numbers out of sticks during our nature walk. The students also found out that the little red envelope is a symbol of good luck and learned how to make an origami pig in honour of this year’s zodiac animal. We wish all Kindergarten families good health, joy, and prosperity!
