On Friday 20 March 2015 our College joined together to celebrate World Down Syndrome Awareness Day by wearing ‘lots of socks’. Students and staff across the College turned up in crazy socks to help raise awareness and to recognise although we may not all be identical we are all valuable. As a College we promote our core values throughout the year, but it was fantastic to have the opportunity as a community to live our core values of ‘respect, compassion, honourable purpose, stewardship and co-operation’ on Friday. At lunchtime students and staff gathered together to have their photo taken and we re-enacted a photo Mr Billings had shared with staff and students at the start of our academic year. The photo was to help us all understand the South African word of Ubuntu meaning “the belief in a universal bond of sharing that connects all humanity” a philosophy that has been taken on across College this year. We felt that this was the perfect representation of our ‘lots of socks’ day.
All Hallows Catholic College Y7 and Y9 students held a Chinese fashion show to celebrate 2015 Chinese New Year, “The Year of the Ram”.
China has 56 different ethnic minorities, each has their own customs. Throughout history each successive dynasty brought its own customs too. All this provides a very rich and fascinating cultural heritage.
Miao people prize a good singing voice and dancing abilities. Song and dance are a big part of Miao people’s daily life.
The Dai people are accomplished singers and dancers. Their music is very famous all over China. Traditional Dai musical instruments include: elephant-foot drum, bronze gong, clarinet, and hulusi.
The Uyghur are an ethnic group from Western China. Uygur people never leave their home without a cap. Caps are the most important piece of clothing for Uygur people. Women like to put designs on their caps. They often add colourful embroidery and pictures.
Tibet lies in the Himalayas. Its clothing is influenced by being on the Roof of the World.Tibetans wear a robe and a shirt. The robes often fastened with two cloth belts.
Hanfu can be tracked back to Huangdi, the king ruled ancient China in the 27th century BC, he made the original rules of Hanfu.
The features of Tang Dynasty clothing were unique and natural and exhibited great exquisiteness. The materials used for garments were stylish, refined and beautiful and the ornamentations were fabulous.
