Children’s Day Celebration Bonfire Fun

The annual Children’s Day Celebration brings an atmosphere of holiday happiness everywhere on the campus at Seng Girls Vocational Training School (SGVTS). Each class had to prepare at least four kinds of performances. Teachers and students used their noon break to rehearse the program. Students actively participated, and different music sounds were heard in each classroom. Some classrooms windows intentionally were covered so that other students couldn’t see their practice. They wanted it to be a surprise.

On Children’s Day, the female teachers got up early in the morning to help with the girls’ make up and braids and arrange activities for the students. The senior students followed the male teachers and helped set up tables and chairs in the dining hall. The tables were filled with fruit, candies and drinks. There were lots of balloons everywhere and the students helped make buns to eat which were filled with beef and cabbage noodles. They were delicious.

All of the female teachers had an opening dance. This year’s program was different from last year’s, besides singing and dancing, there were several games. We played crossword puzzles, balloon games and skipping rope competitions. The winning students got a prize for which was a small doll.

At dinner time, we ate steamed buns again and the chef fried two dishes and the students thought it was delicious. The next day, we began to prepare for the bonfire tonight. Teachers and students worked together to gather the firewood. The fire was big and strong. Teachers and students formed a circle and began to do Guozhuang dance. This year’s Children’s Day ended in a happy Guozhuang dance! ~written by the senior girls at SGVTS
