Ursuline's Mandarin Chinese Classes are celebrating culture and calligraphy.
To celebrate Mid-Autumn Festival — an important tradition in Asian countries — students learned Tai Chi. Dr. Xiujuan Hu, an instructor from The University of Texas at Dallas, taught the martial arts class on campus Wednesday.
Ursuline also recently won best school participation at the Confucius Institute's Calligraphy Competition. The Confucious Institute is part of UTD.
Students wrote a Chinese poem in calligraphy along with this sentence: "I am a high school girl, and I love to learn Chinese. I will serve (Serviam) is one of our school's core values."
