Year 10 and 11 Chinese Excursion

Our Year 10 students of Chinese reflect on their excursion with Year 11 to the Chinese Gardens, Yum Cha and China Town.

On Thursday the 27th May, we went with Year 11 on our Chinese Excursion. We arrived at 9am and sat in a nice park to talk about the history of the Chinese garden and have some morning tea. We learnt about the meaning behind the garden as well as the history behind why and how it was built. 

Inside the Chinese Garden, we enjoyed exploring the many features such as the Dragon Wall, the bonsai and waterfalls, and learnt more about their importance to Chinese culture. As we walked around it was quite relaxing and we found out some interesting facts. For lunch we went for yum cha where we were served a variety of foods such as dumplings, Chinese vegetables, fried rice, fired noodles and much more. We also all got to try Chinese Jasmine Tea. 

After lunch, we stopped by a Chinese bookstore on our way to Chinatown, which sold books on Chinese culture and language, alongside Chinese acupuncture and herbal medicines. We all had the opportunity to explore the selection and practise our reading skills before we left. Afterwards, we walked to Chinatown to look around and explore some of the shops to practise bargaining in Chinese. Since there was a ShareTea nearby, we were even able to order ourselves Chinese pearl tea before we got back on the bus. 

The excursion was a really good opportunity to immerse ourselves in Chinese language and culture. It allowed us to have a better understanding of Chinese art, food and history and apply what we have been learning in class practically. Overall it was a really fun, interesting and enjoyable experience.
