Happy Mid-Autumn Festival!

Happy Mid-Autumn Festival from AISG! Elementary students celebrated the holiday yesterday with their annual Mid-Autumn Lantern Parade.

Students from Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 2 have been working hard on making and decorating beautiful lanterns during their art class and had the chance to showcase them off during the parade. Decorated with shining lights, colorful paper, paint, drawings, stickers, and more, they paraded around campus before entering the MPR, where students from Grades 3 to 5 have been waiting for their entrance.

In the MPR there was a beautiful bridge set up on the stage! In their classes, our younger students took turns crossing the bridge with their lanterns. Meanwhile, the audience of older students sang songs they’ve been learning for the special event, including 但愿人长久 (May We All Be Blessed With Longevity) and 弯弯的月亮 (Curvy Moon).

Our campus courtyard was adorned with lanterns for the holiday, and in addition to the parade, students in their Chinese class created Chinese riddles for each lantern. Throughout the day, students eagerly attempted to solve the riddles, adding to the festive atmosphere and making it a delightful way to celebrate the holiday. Some classes also celebrated the holiday with different activities such as making moon cakes!

Wishing everyone has a wonderful Mid-Autumn Festival and Golden Week holiday!
