The last lesson of term one was dedicated to a beginner grading. Marks were added up in the school holiday break and assignments studied. We are pleased to announce that Emily Whiting has been awarded a junior white sash lion with a mark of 77%! She is now a full member with her membership number being #97 and she will be given her sash and certificate the start of term 2 next week!
OK we've been a bit slack. Or rather busy! So much has occurred this first part of this year with Chinese New Year, Man from Iron Back and even Lambing Flat Festival with performances and appearances - that these recognitions are really for January, February and March!
DRAGON - Jesse Lo. Good attendance record for practise sessions including training 5 times a week before Chinese New Year. Also the youngest person (12 yo) to perform in the 18m Singaporean Dragon Jet and he really isn't fazed by performing in adult positions in dragons and lions.
LION - Samuel Le. Full of enthusiasm during our busy time and good performances in kung fu, dragon and lion for Chinese New Year.
WOLF PACK - Wallace Lo. A rookie to our school and with no prior experience was an essential part of our performance team during Chinese New Year and deciding to stay on as a regular student. Always helping with driving, transporting and storing equipment and doing whatever he can for the academy, demonstrating the true martial arts spirit. Did well with crash courses in gong, cymbals, and dragon and performed in the main dragon for the Chinese Ambassador, National Multicultural Festival and for Yau Kung Mun at the Lambing Flat Chinese Festival.
