Come and help us celebrate the Chinese ties to our district

Next Thursday, a delegation from the Chinese Consulate-General in Christchurch will visit Amberley School to celebrate the link the school has with Rewi Alley, the celebrated New Zealand-born writer, educator, social reformer, potter and member of the Communist Party of China - a cause he dedicated 60 years of his life to.

The China Day celebration will see the Rewi Alley Hall, which houses a community cafe run by the school’s Parent Teachers Association, officially “re-opened” after undergoing an extensive facelift, including a new kitchen.

The event will showcase Chinese culture, traditional activities including music and dance as well as having traditional Chinese food available for purchase.
