Tung Wah Carnival / Ms. Charlotte’s Sculpture Exhibition
March and May 2016
Carnivals are not only for the ESC students. Eight SESC students took time off from books and spent a fun day at the Tung Wah Carnival in March. The boys enjoyed the scariest thrill rides. They screamed a lot that day – a good way to release pressure from school related work.
After the HK Sevens, a group of our SESC students took a different kind of lesson from their ceramics teacher, Charlotte de Charentenay. They went to her exhibition to learn more about her works of art. Thank you Charlotte!
