Year 5 students go oriental

by Cameron Outridge

This year the year 5 classes at Beerwah State School have been learning about festivals, including the Chinese New Year.

Everybody in 5SD made one, big Chinese dragon out of papier mache. 5SD used a sheet for the body covered in butcher paper and painted different colours for the scales.   Tinsel and streamers were used for the tail.   We made up our own wonderful Chinese dance.

We had candles and lanterns to light up our performance and to scare off the evil spirits.   A Pearl Bearer lead the Chinese dragon through the dance.

Our thanks once again to Cameron & Tanya Outridge
of the Range News Newspaper for this story.
