Lunar New Year Celebrations

Every year, the department organises the Lunar New Year Celebration to mark the arrival of this important Chinese festival. In anticipation of the Lunar New Year, festive decorations are placed around the school compound to create a festive atmosphere and Clementians participate in sing-a-long sessions during morning assembly.   
There are two segments on the day of the celebration. Clementians, led by their Form Teachers, will understand the significance of certain traditions and engage in class activities relating to the festival such as paper cutting and making paper oranges and firecrackers. During the concert, Clementians are entertained with performances from various CCA groups such as the school band, choir and the Chinese dance troupe. They also enjoy the annual lion dance performance and various cultural performances.

Enrichment Programme

To enhance Clementians' interest in learning the Chinese Language and to build their confidence in a range of communicative activities, the Primary 3 and 4 Clementians participate in the Chinese Speech and Drama enrichment programme. They explore creative roles through drama to improve their communication skills such as expressiveness and articulation, while developing their imagination, self-awareness and social skills. At the end of the programme, all budding performers get a chance to put up a group performance to put what they have learnt to the test.
