Pupils at Swallowdale School have been celebrating the Chinese New Year by sampling some of the culture and food.

Foundation class one and two enjoyed a delicious Chinese banquet prepared by Mr and Mrs Tang, the owners of Melton’s Jasmine House restaurant.

The couple who’s son Oscar attends the school, brought the children chopsticks to eat the food and gave them all goody bags to take home to share with their families.

The goody bags contained a packet of crisps, a satsuma, lollypop, Chinese sweets, a fortune cookie and a traditional Chinese red envelope with a gold chocolate coin.

Teachers Miss Jenny Cross and Miss Katie Fudge said: “The children loved trying the new foods whilst listening to a variety of Chinese music. This really helped towards their understanding of other cultures within our community.

“Thank you so much to the owners of Jasmine House for visiting our school and helping us create a wonderful day for the children.”
