EDISON, NJ -- The Wardlaw + Hartridge School in Edison celebrated Confucius Classrooms Day with a series of cultural activities on October 4. Students in all three divisions participated in the programs.

Chinese language students and international students joined in a special song - Moon Represents My Heart - during Upper School morning meeting. Hua Liu, Mandarin teacher, introduced the performance and also invited students to view a display of photos and cultural items in the new alcove in the AP Room. Middle and Lower School students took the opportunity to peruse those items during their lunch periods.

During the afternoon in Lower Snowdon, well known Chinese artist Hengyi Aisin-gioro taught Lower, Middle and Upper School students a special painting technique. She is a descendant of the royal family of the Qing Dynasty. She was lucky enough to have the care of the last emperor Puyi and Puyi’s brother Pujie. Her background gave her access to the court tradition in painting and opportunities to see numerous famous paintings held in the imperial court at a very early age. Hengyi transcended the court tradition in Chinese painting and formed a unique style of her own, which she shared with W+H students.
