Chinese Connections

Thursday 9 October saw all students in S2 working on activities on a Chinese theme. This was the culmination of weeks of work in many different subjects, as part of a major interdisciplinary project. In the morning they took part in 4 workshops – cooking, language, martial arts and origami. They then evaluated and presented in the afternoon, creating a ‘Great Wall of Elgin’ in the process.
