Year of the Rat

Mrs I Ding —

Year 7 enjoy making paper rats!

2020 is the Year of the Rat, starting from January 25th, 2020 and lasting until February 11th, 2021. 

The Rat is the first zodiac sign in the Chinese zodiac cycle. In Chinese culture, rats represent working diligently and thriftiness, so people born in a Rat year are thought to be wealthy and prosperous.

Year 7 students are paper-cutting to make rats, then pasting them in the Chinese classroom (G6) window to give their best wishes to Columba students.
