Chinese tea ceremony celebrates end of Mandarin course

Pupils take part in Chinese tea ceremony

A Chinese tea ceremony celebrated the end of the Mandarin course which has given our third year pupils an insight into a different culture as well as the challenge of learning a new language.

The 12 week course was run by native Mandarin speaker Jing Jing Dong from the Stockport ethnic diversity service, who also held the tea ceremony and introduced pupils to ancient Chinese traditions such as calligraphy.

The course was open to third year pupils to help them complete the skill section of the bronze Duke of Edinburgh’s award, but proved to be so popular that it will be available to pupils across the school when it restarts in September.
