Children's school holiday workshops are on again
Welcome to our Fortnightly Roundup. Last Wednesday, nearly 50 students from Christian Brothers College and Pulteney Grammar came to the University to take part in three of our cultural workshops. One of the workshops was on Chinese dragon boat handcraft in celebration of the Dragon Boat Festival in China which was celebrated on June 14 this year. During this festival, many Chinese people celebrate by eating Zongzi/sticky rice dumplings (as shown in this week's image above), and by holding dragon boat races.
These July school holidays we will again be holding two free workshops. The two workshops on offer are mask painting and traditional Chinese painting. More information can be found below.
