2017 Dragon Boat Festival
The Dragon Boat Festival is a traditional cultural event followed by Chinese communities right around the globe. It commemorates the life of the famous Chinese scholar Qu Yuan 屈原. During the festival people eat rice dumplings (zongzi 粽子) and race dragon boats.
Students and Parents,
Part of learning the Chinese language is to have an appreciation of the Chinese culture. At Sydney Chinese School we celebrated the festival by getting everyone to make the rice dumplings. Here are some photos taken on the day.
