In keeping with our well-established school traditions, BVIS students were once again excited to celebrate the Moon Festival.Year upon year, the Mid-Autumn Festival continues to both evolve and improve and has developed into one of the highlights of our busy annual calendar.
Based upon the stories related to the legends of the Moon, BVIS aims to preserve the meaning of Moon Festival for the students through a wide range of interesting activities & lessons across the entire age ranges. As the EYFS students (F1, F2 and F3) were listening to the “Moon story”, decorating their lanterns and making mooncakes, Y1 students were learning about old Mid-Autumn traditions surrounding play, the meaning of dragon dance and of course, food. The paper lanterns of Y2 students were so beautiful that some of their parents could not believe that they had made them by themselves!
An outstanding highlight of the event for all our community was the performance of Y3 and Y5 students at the Assembly on Friday. At first, the Y5 students performed their amazing dragon dance with the lead of Ms. Ha and Mr. Vo. Then, 5B students performed the story “Moon Guy” with their own style and personality which kept our audience of over 1,000 people thoroughly entertained. 5V and 3S students performed their natural dances to express their dream of flying to the moon to visit the Moon Guy, followed by 3B and 3V students who then performed a mysterious fire-fly dance and creative chair dance. 3I students had their own soft and colorful paper fan dance to continue the high standard of performance and entertainment.
The stories of “Legend Moon” and “Mr. Moon Visits” were performed very expressively in the dances of 5I and 5S students.
