chinese bhudda festival

​On Friday, 4 May, Chinese students from Year 9/10 attended the bathing buddha birthday festival in the Southbank Parklands. At the festival the students participated in numerous cultural Chinese activities, ranging from writing wishes, calligraphy, Chinese percussion, Chinese fan dancing to martial art demonstrations as well as tasting traditional Chinese vegetarian cuisines. 

Students were given a dragon lantern representing the Chinese year of the dragon as a souvenir for their participation. The festival is an important event for the Chinese community of Brisbane and was a great opportunity for students to experience Chinese culture outside of the classroom.
