Chinese new yearAt a special assembly, pupils from S5 and S6 led the School in a celebration of the Chinese New Year.

The Year of the Monkey was introduced by Sarah Kwan (S6), who used her own experience to tell us about traditional family celebrations.

Mark Liu (also S6) demonstrated the dragon dance inside a wonderful costume, kindly loaned to Watson's by the Chinese School at Drummond Community Centre, while members of the fifth and sixth year portrayed Chinese Zodiac characters to deliver an animated history of this tradition.

Mrs Meiklejohn, whose idea it was to hold the assembly, said it was a fantastic cross-cultural experience, of which she was proud to be a part.
