Today, September 28th, our students, parents, and all staff had a wonderful time on campus celebrating the Mid-Autumn Festival. At 8:30 a.m., before we started the celebration activities, Mr. Bill, the AXIS Head of School, delivered a welcome speech and warm wishes for the upcoming holidays.
Following Mr. Bill’s welcome speech, students started to join the game booths. They went to different booths and experienced the traditional games and activities. This was also a special experience for parents to join the school event and play with their kids.
After the game booth time, students were grouped and participated in the “Bo Bing” activity. “Bo Bing” is a Chinese National Intangible Cultural Heritage that originated from Southeastern Fujian Province. It is a simple 6-dice game played specifically during the Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival.
Students from ECC to Grade 11 rolled the dice and gained their fortune through “Bo Bing”. Either the small or big prizes they won meant they had the fortune for the year 23-24. As the sound of rolling the dice rose and fell, this was what the people celebrated the Mid-Autumn Festival in Xiamen. Kids played, laughed, and enjoyed the “Bo Bing”.
As the closing activity, the Secondary Poetry Contest was held in the auditorium. We welcomed all students, parents, and staff members to watch the contest. Secondary students were divided into four teams to answer the questions related to Chinese poetry and Chinese culture and win the points. Our CAL students also performed a famous Mid-Autumn Festival song (“但愿人长久”) for the audience. Good job, AXIS dragons!
