SJIIM had a school-wide Chinese New Year celebration in January 2020 to usher in the beginning of a new year on the traditional Chinese calendar. Staff, students, and parents came dressed in their traditional Chinese costumes and were exchanging traditional Chinese New Year greetings throughout the day. There were Chinese New Year themed assemblies, Lion Dance Performances and the customary giant Lou Sang or Prosperity Toss at the multi-purpose hall to help usher in the ‘Year of the Rat’. The school was aptly decked in red and decorated with Chinese New Year ornaments by members of their Parents Support Group who also organized a Chinese New Year Bazaar to culturally engage our students in the meaning of this festive celebration. It was certainly an enjoyable day for everyone at SJIIM.
