Master Chinese calligrapher Stan Chan spent an afternoon painting at the National Library of New Zealand Chinese Language Week. He translated people’s names into Chinese calligraphy as well as explaining the skill behind his art.

Ilminster students took part in various arts activities to celebrate Chinese Language Week on Friday.

Throughout the term they had workshops that focused on various celebrations in China, including Dragon Dance, Lantern, Chinese New Year, Hungry Ghost and Peking Opera festivals.

The pupils learned about the significance of each festival and did related arts and crafts activities.

They also take regular Mandarin lessons given by the MLAs.
