TX EYFS Celebrate Moon Festival 2016

16 September 2016

This week, the Early Years children joined their parents in celebrating this year’s Moon Festival.

As a British International School it is important to us that we embrace our host country’s culture and traditions and what better way for us to do this than with a celebration.  Throughout the week children have been taught the story of Moon Festival and shared their own experiences of the event.  They enjoyed talking about the different ways that families celebrate the festival and comparing it to the celebrations of their birth country.  The children particularly enjoyed tasting Moon cakes and ‘taro’ proved to be the children’s favourite flavour!

On Thursday morning the parents of our youngest children gathered in the school foyer with their cameras poised to take a photo of their child in their first parade of the school year.  The children filled their teachers with pride as they bravely walked out to join the celebration.  Parents were encouraged to join their children in activities such as decorating lanterns, painting pottery, fishing and moon cake making.  It was lovely to see children and parents spending quality time together as they showed appreciation for Vietnam’s Mid-Autumn festival. A big thank you must be said to all of the teaching assistants who put time and effort into the planning and running of such a successful event.  A fun time was had children, parents, nannys, grandparents and teachers alike.

Mr Adam took many wonderful photos - you can view and share them from our gallery here!

Happy Moon Festival!
