Many thanks to lovely librarian Fiona O’Rourke (right below) and assistant Lyn (left below) who hosted me to a fabulous morning today with the loveable lambs of Prep and the giddy goats of Grade 4 at Geelong Grammar Junior School! The big kids met my artistic ram Rodney, and we had a great chat about Chinese customs for Chinese New Year and how these reflect Chinese values and relationships. And the little ones met my vain Pin Yin Panda and learned all about how the animals joined the Chinese Zodiac in Lord Buddha’s Great Race! I hope you all had as much fun as I did! Here I am above with Peter, who was a great help with my Chinese pronunciation – thank you Peter!

Rodney Ram and I started our Chinese New Year Melbourne tour at the wonderful Fintona Girls School this morning, with a wild and woolly assembly! We talked all about Chinese New Year, and the Chinese Zodiac, and how it all started with Lord Buddha’s famous Great Race, and how you have to get everything super-clean in time for the big day, including your house, and your business, and your haircut! Then the gorgeous girls met my equally gorgeous Ram for a fun story reading! It was a fun frolic! Many thanks to Head of Junior School, Sally Clayton (above), librarian Robyn Sundberg and Year 2 teacher Andrea Sherburn for hosting me! I look forward to lots of entries in my Clever Competition from the Fintona Flock!
