TWIS places a strong emphasis on developing students’ Chinese language proficiency as well as their understanding of Chinese culture. In celebration of this important Chinese festival, TWIS Chinese Department organized a mooncake making activity for the whole school last week. While mooncake symbolizes “Reunion” and “Happiness” of families and communities, teaching students how to make mooncakes for their family is an engaging way for them to experience the traditional culture.
For many students, this is the first time they have ever made the snow skin mooncake. They were having a lot of fun and of course, eating the mooncakes after the class was a highlight. Day students were extremely excited as they could bring home their handmade mooncakes and share the joy with their family.
