The EYFS children began with a parade holding their lanterns high and then joined their mums and dads in creating items like playdough moon cake and lanterns, as well as playing traditional games in the playground.

TX EYFS Celebrate Moon Festival
As usual the task of judging the lantern competition for Years 1 to 6 proved very challenging for Mr Tim, our school principal, and Ms Mary. The standard of creativity and attention to detail was so high! This was evident after the lantern parade in assembly; with all the lanterns glowing so brightly, I am sure Chu Cuoi must have been able to see the way back to Earth. Congratulations to all the winners of the lantern competition. Following other Vietnamese songs and dances, it was time to particularly thank all the teaching assistants and Ms Thanh for all their hard work in making this festive time so special.
Thanks to Mr Adam and Mr Chau for taking so many wonderful photographs. If you would like to see them, please click on the following links:
