A Chinese cultural show was held at Yat Sen Secondary School last Friday.
These was in a bid to let the students of the different ethnic groups within the school know more about the culture,  said the Chinese Embassy’s political counsellor, Yang Zhaohui.
The show, which was sponsored by the Chinese Embassy, was organised for the students by the Chinese teachers serving at the school.
“This show is held to introduce the Chinese culture in the school in the school and let other students know about it too,” he said.
“The tradition and customs of the Chinese is of much value to the people.”
He said the show would enable students to grasp a good interest in learning about the culture.
“Chinese is one of the big ethnic groups in Fiji and this show will also help us get the Fijian people to understand and learn what the culture is all about and its values.”
Mr Yang said it was always a great feeling seeing the Fijian people take part in the Chinese experiences.
Meanwhile, Yat Sen Secondary Year 10 student, Caremu Zhong said the cultural show was educational.
“We got to learn more about the Chinese culture because they provided us with Chinese entertainments and we also got to watch a video of achievements by the Chinese,” the 15-year-old said. The Chinese cultural show at the school also coincided with the Lantern Festival, the last day of the Chinese New Year in accordance with the Chinese Lunar calendar.
