Celebrations Ringing in the New Year

20170127_CNY_Blessing-4What do a swan, monkey, chicken dance, and Peking opera have in common? Why, they all are part of the BCIS Chinese New Year celebrations, of course!
As the dawning of the Spring Festival draws upon us, various events to celebrate this special occasion have been held in all three sections of the school. Led by the respective Chinese Studies Teams and teachers, students have taken to the stage to not only showcase what they have been learning from the various units (including Who We Are and How We Express Ourselves) in their classrooms to their parents, but also mark the start of this important holiday together. Not only confined to assemblies, the children have also spent quality time within their classes to learn more about the Chinese culture and its various traditions. Some of the weeks’ highlights included a delightful parade, dumpling making classes, musical performances, and more.
The Chinese New Year is more about red envelopes, firecrackers, and an awfully long television spectacular. It is, most importantly, about the reunions of families, friends, and loved ones ringing in the new year together, as well as the wishing of good fortune to all. With firmly planted roots in the Chinese culture, BCIS always takes the opportunity to display this proudly since it makes us who we are. And so with that in mind, on behalf of the entire community, we would like to wish you and your families only the best in the year of the Rooster!
