Key Stage 2 students performing the traditional Dragon Dance for students, staff and parents today.

The second week of Chinese New Year celebrations started out brilliantly with a magnificent Dragon Dance presented to us by talented Key Stage 2 students outside the primary school. As I took my daily route around the school, I heard in the distance pieces of traditional Chinese music coupled with rhythmic drumming. As I stopped to find out where it was coming from, I could barely see through the crowds! It was in fact two yellow and red dragons dancing aggressively, waved by a group of students dressed in traditional Chinese outfits. I joined in the crowd and cheered them on for entertaining us with such a great piece of art. Luckily, I enjoyed the performance again during lunchtime when they came to the secondary school.

中国新年庆祝活动的第二个星期,以KS2在小学部入口处一场声势浩大的舞龙表演揭开帷幕。稍后的午休时间,一黄一白两条龙也在中学部的草地上给中学部的同学们带来了春节的浓浓气氛。黄色和红色的龙舞相映,由一组学生身着中国传统的服装的学生们灵巧地挥舞着。毫无疑问,在我身边的每一个观众都被他们感染着,充满着新年将至的期待和愿景。
