KL International School Celebrates China’s Mid-Autumn Festival

As a truly global community, KL International School of Chongqing Bashu recognizes the critical role that an appreciation of cultural diversity plays in the development of each of our students. With our location in one of China’s most dynamic cities, we are well-poised to give our students authentic exposure to all the richness of Chinese culture. Our celebration of the Mid-Autumn, or Moon, Festival (Chinese: Zhongqiu) on Sept. 25 was an opportunity to do just that!

Students’ parents attend the party and learn some Chinese traditions alongside their children.

Parents join students to learn how to make mooncakes, a signature food for the festival. The round shape of the cake symbolizes family togetherness, and the sweet taste represents happiness.
