Students from Garden International School welcomed in the Chinese New Year with a special Mandarin Night.
Mandarin teacher Amy Guan helped organise the event to welcome the Year of the Snake. Many students, teachers and parents came along and joined in with a series of fun games, which the International Baccalaureate (IB) students took care of. On February 11, the day after the New Year, students and teachers came to school dressed in red to honour the Chinese celebrations.
As well as helping with the Mandarin Night, the IB students are involved with many community activities, such as visits to a special school and helping run a recycling project in school.
