Fortnightly Roundup

The Mid-Autumn Festival is held on September 21 this year. To celebrate, yesterday we hosted a special Chinese Conversation Corner where participants learned how to make Mooncakes. We have also been supporting various university celebrations for the festival with traditional Chinese music performances. We would like to wish all those celebrating, a Happy Mid-Autumn Festival! 

Just in time for the school holidays we have released a new cultural workshop video teaching the art of Chinese Knotting. We are also holding Chinese Painting and Taichi workshops validated by Children's University Australasia these school holidays, free for all to attend.

A reminder that this afternoon's Chinese Conversation Corner will be the last session before the University break. These classes will resume again on Thursday, October 7. 

What's New

Chinese Cultural Workshop Video - Knotting

In this video, you will learn to make a simple Chinese-style knotted bracelet. We will also give a brief history of what knotting was used for in ancient times, and how people use it today. You can head over to our YouTube channel to view it here.
