We hope that you enjoyed a fantastic holiday weekend, had the traditional celebration food and watched the dragon boats race.
Here at Newton we had a special celebration of our own. In each classroom the teachers talked to the children about the story behind the festival.
They learned about the delicious foods and why they are eaten. In addition to the story-telling classes made a variety of crafts to mark this occasion.
Young children made the herbal satchels to attach to their bags and take home. Older kids made dragon boats and festive decorations.
It was another fun holiday here at Bayside Newton and we look forward to many more celebrations as fun and exciting as this one!
