Mid-Autumn Festival 2019

A few weeks ago, our teachers and children had an amazing time celebrating mid-autumn festival! We had a whole line up of exciting activities, which were a perfect mix of culture, tradition and fun! Children were kept engaged the entire day. In some centres, even our parents were engaged with evening mid-autumn celebrations and lantern walks! Let’s take a look at what our different centres were up to 😁

Our teachers and children came dressed in beautiful traditional attire to celebrate this event! Children even brought along their own lanterns to school.

We had to give our children a first-hand experience of making the staple food during mid-autumn celebrations- Mooncake! Our teachers specially prepared all the ingredients for our children the day. They loved shaping the dough and the fillings into the different moulds.

The children also had the opportunity to eat some mooncake and drink some tea with their friends and teachers. It was a really fun and authentic experience for them!

Our teachers also planned different games and activities for them to participate in! Over here, we have a puzzle-piecing game. Children not only enjoy fixing the hand-made puzzles but they learn about the inscriptions and shapes of various mooncakes.

Some children also had the opportunity to design and make their own lanterns!

Children in this class made a really huge lantern that was pretty reminiscent of the famous ones in Taiwan! They did a brilliant job decorating the lantern with hand-drawn hearts. ma18

Our teachers were really blessed to have received delicious mooncake (some handmade by the children!) from our parents! Thank you so much for your generosity. 😁

We wanted our celebrations to be an opportunity for children to truly immerse themselves in the tradition of Mid-Autumn Festival. To do so, it is important for children to learn about the meaning and history behind the different practices carried out. Our teachers put together engaging presentations to share interesting facts and stories with our children so that they are able to learn more! 😊

Some of our Mid-Autumn celebrations took place in the evening so that we were able to have our parents participate! Our teachers put in extra time and effort to plan and prepare for these events and we greatly appreciate them for it.

Children at this centre put up a skit performance telling the story of the legend behind our Mid-Autumn celebrations. Parents were really impressed by the performance and our children enjoyed showing their acting talents as well!

Before leaving, each family got to bring home handmade mooncakes that were made by children during the day!

To end of the night, parents and children lit up paper lanterns and did a lantern walk around the estate. It was such a meaningful event for parents and children. We were glad that we were able to organise and create opportunities for shared experiences between family members!

Children in this centre participated in the Mid-Autumn Party that was organised by the GRC of Segar. We were really excited to be part of this celebrations. Our children put in their best effort on stage and delivered a really stunning performance to our audience!
