July 2013 Holiday Update

Ni hao!

Hope you are enjoying your holidays so far. We’ve certainly got a lot of exciting plans for the next 2 weeks here at Mandarin Stars!

Over the break we are running a number of action-packed holiday programs as part of Kidsfest 2013, and what a wonderful time to celebrate our diverse cultural backgrounds here in NZ.

Today we kicked off our first day of workshops, and of course they were met with great success. The smiles were hard to wipe off our children’s faces as they enjoyed a myriad of fun educational experiences, including cooking dumplings, learning calligraphy, creating masks, and practicing traditional Chinese dances. Even the parents will get to join in the adventures by going on a Yum Cha excursion later in the week!

Our up and coming holiday programs have also featured in our local Chinese paper, The Sun. Here’s what they had to say about Mandarin Stars in their June 28 issue…

We would love to hear from you soon.

Xie xie!
