The Lion Dance workshop was absolutely delightful this morning. The boys had a fantastic time playing the Chinese drums, cymbals, and gongs, as well as immersing themselves in the Lion's props to dance. A big thank you goes to Sabrina for her clear instructions and infectious enthusiasm, which truly added a spark of joy to the entire workshop.  Year 5-6 Teacher, Trinity Grammar School
