CHINESE culture was the order of the day at school celebrations.

Pupils from St Mary’s School, Nercwys, celebrated Chinese New Year with a variety of fun-filled activities.

Students created their own Chinese dragon and learned about Chinese food and  calendar years in Chinese culture.

Nathan Williams, a teacher at the school, said: “They had different stations where they looked at different things. It was looking at different aspects of Chinese culture.

“We have done it in the past, it is part of an ongoing programme of looking at different cultures.”

Bryn Coch School in Mold also held a Chinese New Year lunch, while Ysgol Maes Edwin at Flint Mountain celebrated by making a pin board display.

In Wrexham, pupils at the Madras School, Penley, performed traditional songs in front of parents before trying Chinese food.

The children also made paper dragons and lanterns, while children in the nursery learned how to say ‘happy New Year’ in Chinese.

Sally Evans, administrator at the school, said: “The children have all been really enjoying themselves.”

At St Giles School, Wrexham, pupils learned about Chinese culture before making fans and dragons and tucking into a banquet. They also enjoyed listening to Chinese music.

Helen Pugh, of St Giles School said: “We tried to take all the aspects of Chinese culture and teach the children about it. They have really enjoyed it all.”

Pupils at Llay Park School also celebrated Chinese New Year.
