Following the successful Chinese school day in St. Nicolas and St. Mary’s School, CEDP -- Chinese Centre runs another two "Chinese Days" at Cross-in-hand and the Forest School for boys. Over 1000 students in these three schools experienced the Chinese lion dance, language, music, films, KongFu, TaiChi, painting, paper cutting, trying costumes, games, workshops and wonderful Chinese food. Most of them have tried almost everything.
