On the 24th and 25th of January, the Interact Club of WMSKL(I) had our first Chinese New Year Understanding Day. The event was organised by our IU Directors, Int. Jermaine Chok and Int. Ong Kye Li. The main purpose of this event was to allow students to have a deeper understanding towards Chinese New Year.
We had an exhibition in the school's Dutton Hall during break and lunch where decorations and fun facts related to this celebration were prepared and showcased. Games such as an obstacle course, whisper challenge, Happy Family Card Game, tongue twisters, Chinese riddles and many more were conducted to let students know more about Chinese New Year in an interactive way.
There was also a wishing fountain for the students to make their Chinese New Year wishes. Besides that, we had a "Take What You Need" display where students could take their own Chinsse New Year blessings and pass it on to other people to spread the love and festive spirit. We also had a mini museum where traditional Chinese objects were displayed with information beside them so students could learn more about Chinese artifacts.
Not only did the event receive overwhelming support from the students, even teachers joined in the fun. The event wrapped up on Wednesday and the Interactors helped cleanup after that. Overall, the event was a huge success and we hope you enjoyed it too (: Thank you for reading!
