Secondary Lunar New Year at Bangkok Prep - Bangkok Prep

Secondary Lunar New Year at Bangkok Prep

This week the Mandarin team, with the help of our dedicated students and the events team, organised and held the celebrations for the Lunar New Year. Students and staff spent a lot of time creating decorations to adorn the whole school, creating an authentic environment for the celebrations which welcomed the Year of the Rat.

On Monday morning all students attended a special assembly for the celebrations where they were able to witness professional and exhilarating performances of the Dragon & Lion Dances. Some of our Mandarin students also presented to the school about the different customs and traditions in a variety of countries.

Even the staff working in the administration block were treated to a special performance after the assemblies in order to bring good luck to the school – and they had a great time!

It was a fantastic event and we hope parents and students really enjoyed celebrating with the World Languages team. However, the celebrations are far from over! On Friday 7th February students will again have the opportunity to celebrate the end of the Lunar New Year festival through the Mandarin Language day. On this day, all language students will take part in a short quiz and will also have the opportunity to earn points for their House by competing in the Chinese song karaoke in the Undercroft at lunchtime! We look forward to seeing many students give it their best shot!


鼠年报喜!鼠年行大运!

为了迎接春节的到来,中文部的老师,学生以及学校的行政人员花了很多时间来布置整个校园,让校园内充满过年的气氛。
