Chinese Culture Promotions in Port Vila International School
On May 23, Port Vila International School (PVIS) in Vanuatu held the annual “Big Sales Day” when people brought new or second-hand stuff to sell, which attracted many local and foreign people. The Confucius Classroom at Emalus Campus, the University of South Pacific, Vanuatu took this opportunity to carry out cultural experiencing activities like paper-cutting and calligraphy. Red paper with animal patterns and Chinese characters with pictures attracted attentions from kids and adults, who joined to work out art works with scissors or brushes. The kids were so happy to get some desserts as awards. The principal and teachers of PVIS also came for photos and experience, who thanked us for making the school event more diversified. PVIS is one of the leading schools in Port Vila. We hope this promotion will better spread Chinese culture in this multi-ethnic city.
