Mid-Autumn Celebrations Focus On Children 与小朋友们庆中秋

H2016_10Sep_p

UniSIM Centre for Chinese Studies (UCCS) hosted some 200 guests - including UniSIM Alumni, students, staff, as well as their family members and friends - at its annual Mid-Autumn Festival Celebration held at the SIM HQ Koi Pond on Saturday, 10 September 2016. 

The theme of this year's Mid-Autumn Festival celebration was on traditional Chinese art forms performed by young children in order to encourage the younger generation to have a deeper appreciation for Chinese culture. SIM University President, Professor Cheong Hee Kiat, in his welcome speech also offered a timely reminder that the mindset of lifelong learning starts from young and continues throughout our lives. 

For that reason, the evening's performances were presented by a group of children with a passion for traditional Chinese culture. From high-energy martial arts moves to fluid Taichi strokes, and the warm distinctive music from a dulcimer to the lilt of children’s voices in poetry recitation, these children not only showed off their skills, but more importantly their pride in these art forms. 

In addition to savouring traditional moon cakes, frozen yogurt and Chinese tea, guests also had the opportunity to take part in DIY snow-skin mooncake making. 

The party ended with traditional lantern riddles games where many participants won attractive prizes that were sponsored by the Taipei representative office in Singapore. 

与小朋友们庆中秋

今年的中秋奔跃晚会迈入了第五个年头。于9月10日傍晚所举办的庆中秋活动,现场来了约200名新跃大学校友、学生、教职员及家人、朋友和孩子们,大家聚集一起庆祝中秋佳节。 

为了强调传统文化传承的重要性,主办单位邀请到了一群热爱中华传统文化的小朋友前来为大会呈献太极、武术、扬琴和诗歌朗诵表演,希望通过这一系列表演让来宾对中华传统有更深一层的了解,并藉以培养他们对中华文化的兴趣。新跃大学校长张起杰教授在欢迎辞里,特別强调终生学习是贯穿人生中的旅程,应该从小就培养。就像儿童对传统文化和价值观的认识也要从小开始培养。 

当天晚上的第一个表演项目, 是由意力武术呈现的一段武术表演。小朋友们一拳一脚打出了精气神,博得全场观众热烈的掌声。接下来的表演项目- 从扬琴的明亮清脆声,到太极的 阴阳和谐及朗诵的抑扬顿挫 - 孩子们不仅展示了他们傲人的技能,同时还展示他们对传统文化的那份热情。 

除了品尝月饼,冰冻优格和中国茶之外,家长和孩子们也积极参与了做月饼的亲子活动,一起动手制作美味可口的冰皮月饼。 

晚会在最后压轴的猜灯谜游戏下精彩落幕。 

中秋奔跃晚会由新跃中华学术中心举办,彩灯迷游戏奖品 由驻新加坡台北代表处赞助。
