Tapping into the wealth of content that the Educational Kit for Primary Schools has to offer, the CnC Education Team has held a series of ‘Culture at a Glance’ workshops at local primary schools throughout the 2016/17 academic year. The format – an exciting blend of interactive games, story-telling and animations – was as varied as it was fun, allowing young students to experience Chinese culture in all its extraordinary richness and value. The workshop was offered at two key stages – KS 1 and KS 2, each lasting about one hour.

KS 1

KS 2

A bowl of rice

More than
brushes and paper

Each grain of rice is grown from hardship; each the fruit of sweat and toil.
Shaped like hands cupped together, a bowl is filled with love and care.
A bowl of rice teaches us the value of hard work, the joy of reaping what we have sown and the spirit of perseverance.

The free-flowing strokes of a brush give form to our thoughts,
spread far and wide on a thin sheet of paper.
As well as being central to cultural development, brushes and paper have documented our serious attitude towards learning and respect of knowledge.

The extended workshop of " Educational Kit for Primary Schools – Culture at a Glance " kicks off!
11-11-2016

“Culture at a glance" Interactive Workshop, which is the extended workshop of "Primary School Learning Kit”, has finally launched in local primary schools for both junior and senior primary school students. The team is grateful to have various local primary schools participating in the workshops. In pursuit of offering a brand-new learning experience, the workshop is designed in a new form blending dramas and talks, hoping to share the Chinese culture and virtues via a relaxed yet interesting way.

The first junior workshop – “A Bowl of Rice” was held early this month. Rice is essential for human beings. Nevertheless, do we have any in-depth understanding on such food? In fact, the growth of rice often relied on the hard work and genuine effort of farmers. In the ancient China, farmers had to spend a whole year to achieve the harvest. Just like the ancient sayings, “Rising with sunrise, resting with sunset”, their work was routine and restless.

In a section of the workshop called “A Year of the Farmer”, students would learn how a seed of rice becomes thousands of rice and how much time and effort the farmers have spent in different seasons due to the climate and nature. Not only did this process embody the representative of relentless effort and progressiveness, but also illustrated the harmony between nature and human beings.

A few days later, the senior workshop – “Chinese Brush and Paper” has also started since then. The tutors introduced the ancient recording tools and media to students at the beginning and brought up the theme “Chinese Brush and Paper”. Chinese Brush is more than a tool of recording. It is delicate and sensitive, catching movements and subtle emotions easily; moreover, its brushstrokes reveal ones’ strength, posture, feelings and even personalities. As for Chinese paper, its whiteness, lightness and inexpensiveness enable people to forget its existence encouraging the gaze focusing on the black ink. Those papers are low-cost but absolutely treasurable in the light of popularizing and sharing knowledge.

In the last activity of the workshop, the tutors invited students to write down some encouraging words at that moment for their junior schoolmates in the future. All of them took it very seriously and even shared the wordings to the others immediately.
