Adults enjoy moon cakes and drink tea while children are playing with their colourful lanterns which represent beautiful sources of light during the celebration. There are also traditional toys that children parade around under the full moon. They are commonly shaped into geometric shapes or animals.

To celebrate one of the biggest festivals of a year, APP children have been making and creating their own lanterns in various shapes. The lanterns are now hanging in their classrooms as decorations. The children also researched ingredients of the moon cakes and how they are made. After that, they tasted the moon cakes and enjoyed listening to one of the Moon Festival stories.

Following the celebration, teachers, children and parents will come to school in their Ao Dai on Friday and watch the superb Dragon Dance as well as Moon Festival Assemblies.

Here are some pictures of APP children during their preparation for our Moon Festival celebration!
