Six Chinese cutural traditional activities were available for almost 600 Takapuna Normal Intermediate students to try on their Chinese cultural day - martial arts, Chinese brush painting, calligraphy, Beijing opera mask painting, paper cutting and dumpling making. Susanna Guo, Mandarin Language Assistant from Confucius Institute and ten teachers from Chinese New Settlers Service Trust (CNSST) talked the students through the cultural knowledge behind the activity before they gave the activity a go.

The day was run by Takapuna Normal Intermediate in conjunction with Confucius Institute at Auckland University.
