Festive seasons present good opportunities for learning so during every festive season we will organize a Cultural Awareness session.
In KDSF-National Centre every year before the festive season Kwik & Ez will come and provide free hair cut for the children. Most of the children are quite used to the hair cut sessions. They will not put up a fuss when their hair is being cut. However we do have some who are having challenges when the electric razor goes to the head! They are not used to the sensation produced by the razor.
To prepare the children to be familiar with the Lions and the din of the Lion Dance, a Cultural Awareness session was held on 11th February 2015. The teachers help the children to create their own lions for the lion dance. There were games related to the Chinese New Year traditions, with ang pows and mandarin oranges and of course we had our own Lion Dance.
The Chinese New Year celebration ended with a party organized by the Parents Support Group of the National Centre. At the party we had the real Lion dance and most of the children were enjoying the dance with no fear.
The Lions met each other!!
