We hope this post finds you well and that you have had a wonderful start to 2022. As you may know, Chinese New Year is approaching on the 1st February, this year is the year of the Tiger.

We hope you can all enjoy these activities in celebration of Chinese New Year. Please feel free to share with us some activities, resources, attach pics or links that we can share with other centres so they can all join in on some fun creative activities, not only for Chinese New Year but for other public holidays and celebrations to come!

We also like to share PD courses with our teachers and centres, and if you know of any PD courses that can be useful to other teachers and centres please feel free to share them with us and we can pass them on!

We love to share our knowledge and ideas on activities and ways for teachers and centres to gain more skills etc, and we would very much appreciate if you would like to do the same!

Happy Chinese New Year to come! The team at Utopia Education wishes you well.
