Dragon fun at school

mumS and dads joined in the fun at Roberttown School as part of a family learning event.

Parents and carers were invited to school to take part in craft sessions inspired by the Chinese New Year.

January 23 marked the first day of the Year of the Dragon, and children made dragon themed creations.

Organiser Stephanie Morton said: “The children did some reseach about the background of Chinese New Year on the computer and they made a hand-held dragon and a red money wallet. They put a sweet and a message in the wallet which they exchanged with a friend.

“Their parents and grandparents came in to work with them in a fun environment.”
