Chinese New Year Celebrations
On Tuesday 20th February 2018 Mr Hackett accompanied eight children who are taking part in the Rotary Junior Community Award this year. As part of the award the children are required to take part in a community celebration, as well as attend a cultural event. For the fourth year we have been invited, through our links with the Confucius Institute, to attend Preston's Chinese New Year Celebrations. This year the children were entertained by the Nanjing Little Red Flower Art Troupe, who performed traditional Chinese music, dances as well as a showcase of Chinese calligraphy and painting skills. The children enjoyed the performance and are developing a greater understanding of culture and community by being part of the Rotary Junior Award group run by Mr Hackett.
