Our school triumphed at the Regional Speech Contest Final last Sunday. Out of 6 first prize winners, our school collected 4.

5 schools participated in the final contest, with 15 kids in each of Grades 1, 2, and 3. Our school sent in 9 kids in total. After close and heated competition, each grade has awarded 2 first, 4 second and 9 third prizes. The break down of our school’s result can be viewed above.

Congratulations to all our participants! While celebrating, we would like to show our gratitude to those who have assisted us along the way:
– Team Leader Jennifer Liu, Teacher Mei Dong Hua, Wendy Cheng and her daughter Natalia, Carol Zhou, and Sarah Zhang;
– the devoted parents;
– the supportive Admin team.
– the hosting branch HXNYC for all the efforts to make it a successful event.

Last but not least, all the glory goes to our talented kids: Each of them thrived under the pressure, and all delivered their best of the best. In addition, we would like to recognize Jeelin Liu, who sacrificed his opportunity when we had a tie at the school level contest. All first prize winners and Jeelin Liu will be little MCs in the upcoming Chinese New Year party.

New Adult Culture class – Bagua Walking Meditation

Bagua walking meditation – walking in a circle while holding fixed postures. It will energize and strengthen the body while calming the mind, and refining and purifying the spirit. The exercise will open and harmonize the meridians of the body and promote overall fitness.
Proven effects of practicing Bagua: Bagua calls for practitioners to assume twisted spine positions which not only help stretch the spine, but also enhance blood circulation to all organs. As a result, practicing Bagua can help prevent cardiovascular diseases, cerebral vascular diseases, osteoporosis, and among others. Furthermore, a person can become more flexible and agile as a result of constantly changing direction during practice.

八卦内功,是一种以掌法变换和行步走转为主的内家武功,柔中有刚。走八卦可以在强身健体的同时,平静净化你的头脑和心灵。坚持走八卦还可以帮助你打通经脉,以促进身体的整体健康。
经实践证明的走八卦的功效:走八卦要求练习者的脊柱处于扭转的姿势。这种姿势不仅可以拉伸脊柱,也同时促进血液在各个器官间的循环。所以走八卦可以帮助预防心脑血管疾病,骨质疏松症,等其他多种疾病。同时,因为行走过程中需要定时转换方向,走八卦还可以增强一个人的灵敏度。
