De Lisle’s Mandarin students enjoyed a trip to Beauchamp College on Monday afternoon, to take part in Chinese New Year activities to celebrate the start of the Year of the Tiger.  Students tried their hands at the ancient arts of calligraphy and paper cutting, and also practised fan dancing and a popular Chinese game, kick the shuttle-cock.  Students particularly enjoyed the latter, although they discovered that it was much more difficult than it looked!

Our thanks to Mrs White and Mr Tang from Beauchamp College for organising the afternoon, and for the teachers from the Confucius Institute at De Montfort University for their demonstrations of the different activities.
