2015年1月15、16两日,南太平洋大学孔子学院(以下简称南太孔院)和斐济博物馆在斐济博物馆共同举办“中国文化体验日”活动。两天内共有100余名斐济学生参加了此次活动,零距离地感受和体验了中国文化。斐济教育部长Mahendra Reddy博士、中国驻斐济大使馆杨朝晖代办分别出席了两天的活动并致辞。

斐济教育部长在致开幕词中说,斐济是个多元文化的国家,此次活动无疑会起到增进各个文化之间纽带的作用,希望同学们能够充分利用此次活动的机会,尽可能去了解和吸收其他文化。他对学生们说:“本次活动给你们提供了增长知识和开阔视野的机会,使你们更加了解异国的文化。”他还肯定了南太孔院对于丰富“斐济中学生的课余生活”所做的努力。第二天,中国驻斐济大使馆的杨朝晖代办在致辞中以通俗风趣的语言为斐济学生们传授了中国传统文化知识,并预祝学生们通过此次活动更深入地了解中国和中国文化。

本次活动的目的是将宣传中国文化的重心放在孩子们身上。首先,斐济学生们通过PPT展示了解到了中国传统节日“春节”;通过做亲身体验,了解并品尝了中国的传统饮食--饺子、中国的国宝熊猫和文房四宝;通过游戏了解到中国的国球乒乓球、传统游戏跳绳以及中国筷子的使用方法等。活动中,南太孔院中外教职员工们精心组织安排了活动的每个细节,为每个学生准备了奖品和午餐。整个活动丰富多彩,现场气氛活跃。学生们纷纷被趣味丰富的活动内容所吸引。随同孩子们一起来参加活动的家长们也在一旁露出了满意的笑容。

本次活动也拉开了由中国驻斐济大使馆策划的欢乐春节系列活动的序幕。

The success of “Chinese Culture Day” program

On January 15 and 16, 2015, the Confucius Institute at the University of the South Pacific (CI-USP) co-held “Chinese Culture Day” program with Fiji Museum. In these two days, more than 100 Fijian students took part in the program, learning and experiencing Chinese culture. Fiji’s Minister for Education, Heritage and Arts Dr. Mahendra Reddy and Charge d’ Affairs of the Embassy of the People’s Republic of China, Mr. Yang Zhaohui attended and made speech in the two-day programs respectively.

In delivering his opening address, Dr Reddy said “Fiji is a multi-cultural society and this is the kind of initiative that will strengthen the bond amongst the different cultural groups that exist in our beloved nation. To the students participating today, make the most of it and absorb as much as you can”. Dr Mahendra Reddy also acknowledged the effort of The University of the South Pacific's (USP) Confucius Institute (CI) in “investing in the lives of young children”. On the second day, Chinese Charge d’ Affairs, Mr. Yang Zhaohui delivered a speech with simple and interesting languages on Chinese Culture and basic knowledge of China and Fiji. He wished students to deepen their knowledge on China and Chinese culture through this program.

The purpose of the program is to let children know more about Chinese culture. At first, students were informed, through PPT, with the tradition of Spring Festival. Then some students tried in person to make the traditional Chinese food. Some students chose to make or paint Chinese national treasure—panda and some learned to use the four Treasures of Chinese Study,namely,Chinese writing brush, Chinese ink, Chinese writing paper and ink slab. During the program, students also enjoyed themselves through Chinese national sports—table tennis, and Chinese traditional game—rope skipping. In the program, all the Chinese and Fijian teachers at CI, USP organized every activity carefully, and also prepared students awards and abundant Chinese food for lunch. All the students took active part in the activities and had a great fun. The parents who accompanied students were also very much satisfied with the program.

This program serves as the prelude for the Happy Spring Festival Activities proposed by Chinese Embassy in Fiji.
