Children's Day

Today was International Children's Day, which is widely celebrated in China. The teachers had worked hard in preparation for this day. The children in the CPU who attend classes, prepared drawings for an exhibition in our main entrance. They did a great job and they were very proud of their work. Then they joined the children from the orphanage on the main courtyard, and participated as best they could in games, before being given treats to take home.

For a number of the weeks, the children have been practicing reading short stories and poems to read aloud. We all gathered in the Dayroom, for the children to perform their readings which were done very well, and concluded with a group song.
Each child received a book as a gift after the performance. Lunch and naptime came soon after, when most of the children took the opportunity to get into their books.
