Spring Festival, or Chinese Lunar New Year, is one of the most important festivals in Chinese culture, and is bringing in the excitement and full holiday spirit for most Chinese.
Our Daycare also celebrated spring festival with a fortnight filled with a lot of exciting and fun activities for the children. This time our children decided to make a barongsai or lion dance role play using the barongsai that they made by themselves.
The kids really enjoyed those two weeks period of making spring festival decorations for Daycare such as hong bao, dragon hand puppet, the barongsai and the musical instrument to accompany the lion dance performance. Let's take a closer look!
Entrepreneur Day is one of the annual events held at Tzu Chi Early Childhood School. This activity aims to introduce young children to the concept of entrepreneurship, encouraging them to speak in front of the public, and to market and sell their products. The event was held on Tuesday, January 21, 2020.
In the weeks prior to the market day, children and teachers discussed the products they were going to sell and determine the selling price. The items sold in the market were quite varied, such as food, drinks, handicrafts and various interesting games that can be played by the students.
At the end of the day, the children did some sharing and reflection. They also calculated the income from the selling activity. The profits earned from this event will be donated to foundations or institutions that have been mutually agreed upon by the students such as animal shelters, orphanages, nursing homes, or victims of natural disasters.
We are confident that this activity will help to plant seeds for building and fostering children’s entrepreneurial spirit as a provision of life in the future.
Pada tanggal 22 Januari 2020, SD Tzu Chi bersama dengan Puskesmas Kelurahan Kamal Muara mengadakan imunisasi HPV suntikan ke-2. Imunisasi ini diberikan kepada siswi kelas 6 yang sudah mengikuti imunisasi HPV gelombang pertama tahun lalu, yang diikuti oleh 22 siswi.
Beberapa siswi terlihat sangat antusias mengikuti imunisasi ini, namun ada juga siswi yang takut untuk disuntik. Penyuntikan ini dapat menimbulkan efek samping berupa rasa nyeri, bengkak, maupun kemerahan pada area penyuntikan hingga demam.
Setelah mendapatkan vaksin HPV, siswi-siswi penerima vaksin tetap diharuskan untuk menjaga kebersihan dan kesehatan area genitalia untuk mencegah berkembangnya kanker serviks.
