October was a busy month in the Chatteris International Graduate Programme. The CNETs hosted a variety of events in their schools. “Festivals around the world” and Halloween activities were most popular amongst students of all ages. Students enjoyed learning about different celebrations outside of Hong Kong, dressing up, playing scary games and speaking lots of English!
Throughout October CNETs met at the Chatteris Office to share interests and learn more about Chinese culture. The Chatteris Cultural and Social activities that took place were a “Travelling In Asia” workshop and a Cantonese taster. During these workshops, CNETs were able to actively participate in learning more about these topics.
In mid-November, Chatteris CNETs, students and schools took part in the annual Chatteris Pantomime! This year’s theme was ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’. The show consisted of 17 CNET cast members, 17 CNET backstage staff and the remaining CNETs leading and facilitating the pre-pantomime workshop. Because of the nature of pantomime involving songs, interaction and audience participation, students who took part spoke lots of English and had great fun too. In total, more than 700 students participated in the pantomime. Chatteris would like to thank all staff who made the show such a great success. A video will be made available shortly on the Chatteris YouTube channel.
As a celebration for the successful show, CNETs travelled to the New Territories of Hong Kong to the countryside of Tai Po. There they took part in kite flying, boating, barbequing, hiking and biking round the area.
