Over 300 people attended the performance including the Consul General of the Chinese Consulate in Edinburgh Mr. Xinchun Pan; Midlothian Director of Education Dr. Mary Smith; Director Ms. Fhiona Mackay, depute-director Ms. Fan Lin and Chinese director Ms. Li Tian of Confucius Institute for Scotland’s Schools; invited guests from SCEN and RZSS and pupils from eight different schools. Before the performance Consul General Pan presented a plaque to Depute Headteacher Mr. Colin Mitchell, the award for Midlothian’s Confucius classroom’s nomination as Confucius Classroom of the Year.

The performance at Lasswade brought to an end the celebration of New Year which saw pupils attend the Chinese Lanterns at Edinburgh Zoo, two celebration concerts at the Usher Hall, while in school celebrations included some students making traditional Chinese dumplings.
