Chinese New Year Celebrations

Chinese New Year Celebrations

February 19, 2019 3:08 pm

An eruption of music, colour and dance flows through the Buckswood campus to celebrate the ‘Year of The Pig’.

Buckswood School celebrated the Chinese New Year, bursting with colour and bringing an uplifting atmosphere to the campus. Staff and pupils demonstrated and celebrated the strength and diversity of the multicultural nature and ethos of the school.

This celebration is based around the year of the pig – the twelfth in the 12-year cycle of Chinese zodiac signs.

Buckswood included their visiting students from China and current Chinese boarding students to create a blaze of colour and roar of excitement throughout the week with performances based around the dragon. Showing students the impressive and striking traditions and history behind the Chinese New Year, educating students, guests and even staff!

Visiting Chinese students at Buckswood performed a folk song for the whole school which was greatly appreciated by staff and students. Alongside this, the students and guests dined with chopsticks and traditional Chinese food, following a chopsticks workshop earlier in the week where students had a chance to practice their Chinese dining etiquette.

Buckswood students wanted to showcase their multicultural DNA with the local community, the dance was then performed at a local school on Thursday, showing the talent and practice that has gone into the celebration!
