On the 12th of August, outside the Banksia dining hall, a table was set up with a variety of fruits and a beautifully roasted pig, ready for the ritual. 

We invited all residents and staff over on that day to participate in this year Ghost Festival and pay respect to the ancestors. It is believed in the Chinese tradition that during this month (Ghost Month), the ghosts or spirits will be released from the lower realm to seek food and entertainment.
