The morning of 20th January, 2023 was the big day of ‘Ho Yu Chinese New Year Fun Day’. On that day, Ho Yu children wore festive Chinese traditional clothes together and learnt and experienced traditional Chinese New Year customs and culture through a wide variety of new year activities, such as the making of Chinese traditional paper-cut, new year decoration and the designing of windmill which has the meaning of ‘everything going well’ and DIY red envelope origami for the Year of the Rabbit.
As for our P5 and P6 students, they uphold the Chinese virtue of ‘Senior leads Junior’, set up self-designed Chinese New Year game stalls in school hall and activity room for junior students from P1 to P4 and kindergarten kids within the district to play. From the smiling faces of P5 and P6 students when leading the game, together with the exciting gestures of the junior students and kids from kindergartens in the district when playing the games and activities, we know that our goal of ‘Chinese New Year Fun Day’ has been achieved - to share ‘love and care to others’ and ‘happiness of Chinese New Year’ to the community.
At the same time, the prize-giving ceremony of ‘STEAM: Creative Fai Chun for the Year of the Rabbit’ Parent-Child Design Competition was held. The response to this competition was enthusiastic. Close to one hundred and twenty entries were received. Congratulations to all the winning families. The entries are very beautiful. They fully show the parent-child thoughts, and can also fully reflect the New Year's Day and the "STEAM" element that our school has always put emphasis on.
Finally, Ho Yu would like to thank the kindergartens, parents and children for their love and support for the "Chinese New Year Fun Day" and the ‘STEAM: Creative Fai Chun for the Year of the Rabbit’ Parent-Child Design Competition, which made it so exciting and successfully completed. We are grateful for the love and support from all of you, and working together to enrich children's learning experience.
