Chinese New Year

January 22nd marks the arrival of the Chinese Lunar New Year. This week in the Junior School, A. Peter and A. Maggie have organised a variety of colourful activities.

The cooking class was a particular highlight, where students had the opportunity to roll and make their own dumplings, learning about the traditional food culture. The dragon and lion dance was another fun activity for students to enjoy. G5 students put a lot of effort into this performance, impressing everyone with their amazing show. Aj. Justin gave them a round of applause and presented them with red envelopes as a New Year’s blessing.

The children not only experienced the charm of Chinese culture, but also connected with their own experiences, sharing similarities and differences in how people celebrate their own festivals. Everyone had the opportunity to learn about and respect other cultures through this celebration, becoming more globally-minded individuals.

It is such a good thing that the Lunar New Year provided students with a deeper understanding and appreciation of Chinese culture, customs and traditions, while also promoting cultural exchange and diversity.

Last but not least, we wish everyone a happy, healthy and prosperous Year of the Rabbit and a happy Chinese New Year!
