Welcoming the Year of the Dragon: Wells Thong Lo Campus Celebrates 2024 Lunar New Year!

At Wells Thong Lo Campus, the spirit of celebration and cultural appreciation was in full swing as we welcomed the auspicious Year of the Dragon during the 2024 Lunar New Year festivities. It was a joyous occasion marked by vibrant performances, traditional dances, and cherished moments shared among students, parents, and teachers.
The event commenced with mesmerizing performances by our Mandarin class students, who captivated the audience with their talent and dedication. The graceful fan dance presented by our lovely parents and their dance teacher added an elegant touch to the celebrations, filling the air with beauty and grace.
However, the true highlight of the day was the eagerly anticipated lion dance, a symbol of prosperity, good luck, and protection. Students were filled with excitement as they eagerly fed oranges to the lion, a traditional gesture believed to bring blessings and fortune in the new year.
A heartfelt thank you goes out to our Grade 2 students for their exemplary hosting skills, as they eloquently shared the traditions of Chinese New Year in both Mandarin and English translations. Their efforts not only educated but also enriched the entire community, fostering cross-cultural understanding and appreciation.
As the festivities continued, students immersed themselves in a variety of dog-themed games, embracing the symbolism of the zodiac animal for the year. Laughter and joy filled the air as friendships were forged and memories were made, creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere for all.
May the Year of the Dragon bring prosperity, happiness, and success to each and every one of you.
Happy Chinese New Year, and we eagerly await the return of our students after the break, ready to embark on new adventures and discoveries together.

-Ms. Gona, Principal
