On the evening of September 22nd, the Greater Moncton Chinese Cultural Association of New Brunswick held a Mid-Autumn festival party. Some teachers of CINB and Catherine Theriault, a teacher from Rexton Eleanor W. Graham Middle School, were invited to attend the Mid-Autumn Festival with nearly 200 Chinese compatriots. Wang Ziwei, president of the association, welcomed everyone's arrival and hoped to have more opportunities to cooperate with the Confucius Institute to promote the development of Chinese culture overseas. Chinese school principal, Zhou Yukun and several new immigrants who are keen on overseas Chinese teaching, exchanged their understanding of overseas Chinese teaching with the Dai Zunfeng, Chinese Director of CINB, and expressed the hope that they could carry out this work together with the Confucius Institute. The participants of the party also prepared their homemade Chinese cuisine, and everyone experienced the deep reunion feeling of Chinese culture between the food and fun.
