VIDEO: OPRF Chinese Club Visits Roosevelt Middle School
Through music, food and games, program aims to bridge cultural divide.
In between bites of potstickers and rice — and a few Oreos for good measure —students at Roosevelt Middle School were treated to a recent after school visit from the Oak Park-River Forest High School Chinese Cultural Society club.
Members of the student club explained to the middle schoolers the group's activities, then led them through a series of games and dances linked to Chinese culture.
Truman McGee, an OPRF junior who doubled as the costume head during the traditional Lion Dance, said the club meets occassionally to watch Chinese movies and to snack on Asian treats.
We dropped by Roosevelt on Monday to see the club in action. Above is a short video montage of their presentation.
