On 8th February 2018, with the support of the Confucius Institute at the University of Southampton (CI Soton), Ludlow Junior School held a cultural event with the theme of Chinese New Year with over 150 participants.

The legend of the "Year" in ancient China, told by two teachers from CI Soton, impressed all the pupils. Following the demonstration, pupils experienced Chinese traditional culture through red paper cutting. The event allowed all the participants to feel the festive atmosphere of the Chinese New Year.

Arancha Lopez, head of the school programme, said that the UK and China were becoming closer ever since Prime Minister Theresa May had paid a visit to China some time ago and that the school, as an educational institution in the UK, should follow this trend so that pupils could learn more about China.

The school is considering running Chinese language courses in due course.
