Chinese Envelope Making

Comments are closed.

In preparation for Chinese New Year on 10th February 2013, the boarders met up on Saturday to make Chinese red envelopes for all members of the boarding community. The envelopes are traditionally given away during holidays or on special occasions. They symbolise good luck and are supposed to keep away evil spirits. Mr. Chorley and Miss Klüppelholz were supported by a number of students who helped cutting out, folding and sticking the envelopes together. After this was done the Chinese students drew the Chinese sign for luck on each of them. In the end we managed to make about 150 envelopes altogether.
