Following the great success of the popular Chinese Culture School Holiday Program, which was applauded by overseas Chinese youth students, teachers and parents, this year’s Shaanxi – Sydney Chinese Culture School Holiday Program will move to Cherrybrook Technology High School. Thanks to the support from the Chinese Consulate General in Sydney, twelve teachers will come to Sydney from the hometown of terracotta warriors, the ancient capital of Xi’an. They will teach and demonstrate to students the traditional Chinese martial arts, Chinese folk dance, imitation of Tang music and dance, clay sculpture, Chinese string instrument erhu and flute, shadow puppet show, art of poem recitation, Ansai waist drum, Chinese painting and calligraphy. All teachers have exquisite skills representing top class level in the relevant art category. They will bring us not only culture from the Loess Plateau northwest of China, but also present to us a visual feast of colourful Chinese arts.
Considering that not all overseas Chinese language students have the opportunity to experience Chinese cultures first hand, the Overseas Chinese Affairs Office of the State Council PRC selected top teachers to collaborate with overseas schools making use of the school holidays to provide cultural experience to overseas students emphasizing on-hand and in person experience for participating students. The 2016 Shaanxi – Sydney Chinese Culture School Holiday Program will be jointly organized by Shaanxi Overseas Chinese Affairs and Cherrybrook Chinese Community Association from September 24 to 30 from 9:30 am to 2:30 pm at Cherrybrook Technology High school. In addition, students from different schools will have the opportunity to meet other students and make friends. Students will be able to learn from each other and spend an unforgettable holiday together. This one full week program is open to all 6 to 20 years old students.
