Chinese New Year Festivities

Yet again our campus was transformed into a festive mood with bright and cheerful Chinese New Year decorations. We are so grateful for our lovely parent and student volunteers who invested their time and talent by bringing in the festive period for the Year of the Dragon. 

ISPTA and the student cultural team gave this year’s celebrations a new twist. Along with the teachers’ performance, our very talented parents performed a Chinese-themed dance during lunchtime on Feb 7. After the dance ISPTA, with the support of parents, organised a Chinese snacks food stall sale with Chinese treats like like jian dui 煎堆, egg pastry 蛋散, sesame balls笑口棗, sachima 馬仔, siu mai 燒賣 and rice rolls 腸粉. Students and staff enjoyed the authentic Chinese food and the opportunity to welcome the Year of the Dragon together. ISPTA will use the proceeds from the food stall for student-led projects.

A tremendous thank you to the Chinese parent community for bringing the festivities of the Year of the Dragon to all of Island School!
