A Lunar New Year Lesson

Friends from St. Albans and National Cathedral School Chinese language class (including some Beauvoir alums!) taught our second grade students a fabulous lesson about Lunar New Year yesterday.

We learned about the origins of the Lunar New Year and the Chinese dragon…

… and the Year of the Pig (the 12th animal in the zodiac).

We even got to try on some new year fashions and plan what we want to eat for a very lucky dinner!

And speaking of luck… Beauvoir feels so lucky to have these friends just next door. Many thanks to our pals at STA and NCS for the visit – come back soon!

Happy Year of the Pig
