Play and learn a new language at the Chimo Chinese Club at Chimo Elementary School in Smiths Falls.
The club places emphasis on the development of Mandarin conversational skills and cultural studies; and is specially designed for students to play and learn in a friendly, relaxed and interesting atmosphere through games, role playing and hands-on activities.
Members of the club participate in cultural arts and craft making hands-on activities such as Chinese calligraphy, paper cutting, paper folding, ink painting and drawing.
The children are also introduced to Chinese history and geography, and get to celebrate traditional Chinese holidays like the Lantern Festival, Spring Festival and Moon Festival.
During the last session, the students prepared and tasted dumplings, a traditional Chinese food for the Chinese Spring Festival.
The club is open to students in Grades 4 to 8 from any school in the Smiths Falls area. Because space is limited, only 15 students are accepted at a time.
