Festive mood was in the air as everyone in the College was dressed in red or Chinese costumes to welcome the lunar New Year. The Chinese New Year celebrations kicked off with a special assembly at the Duke of York Theatre where pupils performed modern and classic Chinese New Year songs. The highlight of the celebration was the Lion Dance performance which was highly entertaining, albeit too noisy to one’s liking but we were told the noise was supposed to ward off bad spirits…The celebrations ended with a sweet note, pun intended, with the prosperity toss, also known as the Yee Sang which proves to be very popular with the pupils.
