Chinese New Year Celebrations 2019
This year, the school ushered in the lunar year of the “Pig” with the Best Decorated Classroom competition and a concert.
As a lead-up to Chinese New Year, all classes participated in the Best Decorated Classroom competition. Both teachers and pupils worked together to put up festive decorations to brighten up the classrooms. Some of the decorations drawn and prepared by the pupils were beautiful and created a vibrant atmosphere. Prizes were awarded to the best decorated class for each level, and these were some of the winning classes:
On the eve of Chinese New Year, both staff and pupils were impressed by the performances put up by their fellow friends, and everyone enjoyed the wide repertoire of performances presented.
The highly-anticipated Lion Dance set everyone’s heart palpitating with exciting stunts. The performers imitated the lion's various movements and demonstrated martial arts agility to the sounds of beating drums, clashing cymbals and resounding gongs.
Our Principal giving out red packets to our Operational Support Staff and contract cleaners, wishing them good health for the new year.
Our talented pupils
put up a stellar performance and brought festive joy to the audience. We had
the Chinese Dance, Speech and Drama, Wushu and Guzheng CCA groups showcasing
their best efforts in this celebration.
Games were introduced for the students to learn more about Chinese New Year in an engaging and fun way.
The Cantonese pronunciation of giving mandarin oranges is "song gam", which sounds like "giving gold". Hence giving mandarin oranges signifies blessing of prosperity upon the recipient. Here’s our school leaders giving the staff a pair of mandarin oranges as part of the celebrations.
We would like to take the opportunity to wish everyone 身体健康 (shēntǐ jiànkāng - Enjoy good health), 学习进步 (xuéxí jìnbù - Progress in studies), 心想事成 (xīnxiǎng shì chéng - May all your wishes come true) and of course, 新年快乐 (xīnnián kuàilè - Happy New Year)!
