Temple Fair at BSB
Tuesday 24th January 2017
The Mandarin Department and Parents Association are very busy organising our upcoming event which we are very pleased to give you information about. Our amazing Temple Fair at BSB to celebrate Spring Festival and the Year of the Rooster will take place at 9.00-16.00 on Tuesday 24thJanuary. We hope children, staff and parents will enjoy the day and we would like the students to dress in Chinese costume or wear something red if possible.
There will be colourful performances and plenty of traditional activities, crafts and snacks (see below) for the children to see and buy from vendors. Also, lots of fun and interactive activities with traditional arts and craft will create a wonderful New Year atmosphere.
Children in Primary will be timetabled to visit the fair with their class teacher and TA during the day. There will be opportunities for them to buy things so please discuss this with your child/ren and explain that is a little similar to Santa’s Secret Shoppe where they choose what they want to buy, pay and get change. Older children will help younger children with this. Please put some money with your child’s name and class printed on the envelope with a range of notes (5, 10, 20RMB) to a maximum of 200RMB. They can then enjoy the traditional food on offer and participate in lots of fun Chinese activities.
Secondary students will also visit the fair during lunch time and period 6, so please provide them with some money to enjoy the Temple Fair. Vendors will donate 30% of their taking to the school for charity and we will limit our vendor’s price to no more than 100RMB per product.
Vendors will remain at school until about 4.15pm so parents please come and visit during this time.
We hope everyone enjoys the day.
