As part of our expedition, we have been looking at Chinese New Year and the traditions associated with it. We looked at the tradition of giving red envelopes containing money to children to bring them good fortune, good luck and blessings. This tradition now extends to giving envelopes to extended family, friends and colleagues.
To spread good fortune, luck and blessings to our school community, we decided to fill red envelopes with chocolate coins to give to the adults in our school who help us and keep us safe. We worked together to fill them and then took them around school, wishing each crew a happy Chinese New Year.
