Chinese Culture Activity at Educare USP
On 30th March, 2017, the staff of Confucius Institute at The University of the South Pacific visited Educare, a kindergarten under FALE located within the vicinity of the Laucala campus. It was an exciting and memorable afternoon not only for the kids but for the CI-USP staff.
Chinese teachers led the students in learning a simple Chinese song which accompanies a funny dance, which the students found very entertaining. As Chinese in Fiji and around the world celebrated the Chinese New Year of the Chicken, CI-USP teachers gave out drawing paper and taught the students how to draw a simple chook. Other activities were done and it was great to see interaction between the kids and CI-teachers and the eagerness of the little ones to learn a new language.
At the end of the culture activity, Dr. Yang (the Director of Confucius Institute) presented toys, snacks and fruits to the Educare centre. The innocent smiles of the children is sure to remain in every teachers mind for a long time.
