We were entertained by P7s performing a Dragon Dance, A Fan Dance and Looking for a Friend. P6s performed a lovely colours song in Mandarin. P3 pupils who attend Mandarin classes at the Children’s University at Queen Margaret amazed us all by reading and translating a Mandarin story. Chinese colleagues praised their accents and pronunciation! S4 Lasswade High School pupils also performed a dance to show primary pupils how Mandarin can be continued in High School.
The launch was attended by members of the Chinese Consul, CISS, Lasswade HS, Midlothian Education Team and even colleagues from Fife who are about to have a launch of their own. They left enthused and impressed!
A plaque was presented to Head Teacher, Scott Lavery, by Mr. Zhang Limin, Deputy-Consul General.
