To wrap up the Christmas festivities, we pulled out all the stops. Hold on tight, because we’re about to take you on a sparkling journey through creative workshops, cheerful songs, and bursts of laughter that marked these unforgettable Christmas moments.
None of this would have been possible without the hard work of our amazing teams of volunteer parents from the BDA (Bureau des Animations). They put in an incredible amount of energy to elevate all our activities. And guess what? They even organized a Christmas evening that rivaled the grandest ones at the Sofitel in Hongqiao for families! Check out a few photos below:
The week kicked off with the sweetest little Christmas market ever. The little ones could grab a handmade gift from their classmates in exchange for a voucher! And here’s the real showstopper: those colorful candle holders and the adorable felt Christmas houses – absolute favorites!
With their tiny Santa hats, our students rushed to fill Santa’s sleigh with gifts. It was a memorable show, with big smiles and little spills that had everyone laughing so hard. Small steps, but what a race!
And to top it all off, we finished by singing all together the most beautiful Christmas songs: Jingle Bells, Le Père Noël est enrhumé, All I Want for Christmas, and many more! Enough to keep your inner child alive while waiting for December 25th! Everyone even got a great snack – homemade Christmas brioches called “Mannelés,” courtesy of the young participants in the Ruifeng charity organization’s JOBB program. This program trains underprivileged young people in China in the art of pastry/bakery.
