Celebrating the Year of the Ox

“Bright moonlight before my bed; I suppose it is frost on the ground. I raise my head to view the bright moon, then lower it, thinking of my home village.”

Chinese New Year is the festival that celebrates the beginning of a new year on the traditional Chinese calendar - a time in which China and other countries throughout Asia focus on appreciation for friends and family near and far. Even though many families won’t be travelling back to their hometowns at this special time of year, it didn’t mean we couldn’t celebrate the Chinese New Year with our BSN family.

So, with the Year of the Ox fast approaching, we held our Chinese New Year Celebrations on Friday 5th February in order to recognise this important time of year. Here at BSN students are fortunate to build their language skills in a multicultural environment and have the chance to learn Mandarin at different levels. Language instruction is most effective when embedded in meaningful contexts that encourage application and foster inquiry – All of which were highlighted in the Chinese New Year celebration, as our Four MCs, Jorik, David, Eileen and Dami introduced the acts in perfect Mandarin, starting with our youngest (and coincidentally cutest) performers in Year 1, singing a beautiful opening song; and ending with surprise appearance of a monster in a dramatic re-telling of the Chinese Traditional tale of Nian by our parents. In between, we had impressively choreographed dances, haunting musical performances on traditional instruments, including pipa and guzheng, and further stunning vocal performances from students of all ages. 

2020 has been an extraordinary year, full of challenges and memories; on February 5th,  we said an early “goodbye” to The Year of the Rat and welcomed The Year of the Ox with hope for a peaceful, safe and smooth 2021!
