節慶能夠潛移默化帶給孩子豐富的精神、文化意涵。許多重要的傳統節日均源於四季循環。和孩子們一同慶祝傳統節日,通過一系列的活動,加強了他們對自然韻律的感受、對本土人文的體驗。這也是華德福學校重視節慶的原因之一。

春節作為中國傳統節慶中最為盛大與隆重的節日,包涵了人們對過去一年的總結,對新的一年的期盼。一系列的習俗與活動,如掃塵、寫暉春、貼春聯、舞獅舞龍等都集中體現了中華人民的智慧與精神,體現了中華文化的精髓。

在新春節慶活動中,我們和孩子們講述春節的起源故事、學習相關的詩歌,體驗各式文化活動,如剪紙、畫中國畫、書寫暉春,編織手繩、製作餃子和湯圓等。除此以外,在慶典當天,每個孩子還都會參與到豐富多樣的文化演出中,呈現給家長及整個華德福社區的朋友。大家在舞獅、戲劇、舞蹈、歌曲、「三句半」、詩歌朗誦等表演中迎接新的一年的到來。



Chinese New Year Celebration

Festival Celebration unconsciously influences the children with abundant spiritual and cultural nutrition. Many important traditional festivals relate to the rhythms of the year, guided by the four seasons. Celebrating festivals with children helps them to experience a series of activities and deepen their connection to the rhythms of nature and local humanistic culture. This is one of the reasons that in Waldorf schools we attach great importance in celebrating festivals.

Chinese New Year is considered as the most important festival in China. It conveys people’s reflection for the past year and the expectation for the promising year ahead. A series of customs and activities such as big cleaning, Spring Couplet Writing, lion and dragon dance all embody the wisdom and spirit of the Chinese Nation and the essence of Chinese culture.

Among the Chinese New Year celebration, we tell origin stories of the festivals and learn the festival poems and songs. Through paper cutting, Chinese painting, Chinese Calligraphy, bracelets making, festival food cooking, children experience various cultural activities. Every child takes part in the culture performance that will be presented on the celebration day to parents and the community. We welcome the Chinese New Year with a celebration that includes a wonderful performance of lion dance, play, folk dance, songs, Sanjuban and so on.
