Chinese New Year

Many people around the world celebrate the vibrant and festive occasion called Chinese New Year, also known as the Spring Festival or the Lunar New Year. It marks the first day of the New Year in the Chinese calendar. This event can last for many days and often includes various festivities such as street parades and festivals featuring dancing, traditional Chinese costumes, firework displays, food stalls, arts and crafts, and lanterns. 
 
Amdist the celebrations and learning in the school, the grade 1 class embraced study of ‘Art Around the World’, and learned about the legend of Nian the dragon and how Chinese New Year evolved as a celebration.  The grade one class created these lanterns (picture inset) depicting a Nian dragon and the traditional colors of red and gold.
 
Brockton embraces cultural diversity and awareness and welcomes all to celebrate the season!  
This spring we will look forward to our International Mother Tongue Day once again (more information to come).
