Chinese New Year 2011@SST

12:38 AM Posted by Hardy No comments
On the 2nd of February, Chinese New Year's Eve, SST celebrated her second CNY event. People were full of excitement. They were excited to come to school, to celebrate with their schoolmates.
There was much anticipation to what performances will be displayed.
All the students were given two gold-oranges packed in a cheerful red SST bag

In 2011, SST also brought in some new activities for Chinese New Year. Of course we still had our yearly presentations on Chinese New Year and what that year's zodiac animal represented.

After that, we had something that most of us have not done together! Our very own class "Lo hei"!

Of course, we had to spend sometime cleaning up the place. But, moving right along.

The Wushu Club performing a wide range of Martial Arts moves. Dazzling the crowd!
Alpha Chua also put up some magnificent solo moves too.

Too the joy of the Media Club, an animation clip developed by them was displayed. It was a montage of the zodiac race.

We then had our closure to the "Best Decorated Class" Competition with the prize giving. Congratulations to all the winning classes!

Another prize giving event was also held to congratulate the winning entries for the Super Hero Bunny Drawing Contest.

Then, FINALLY, the moment we've all been waiting for...In every Chinese New year event, there is one thing that NO ONE would want to miss. The LION DANCE!

After that exciting performance, SST had come to the end of the Chinese New Year event. As the school ended early, students rushed to join their friends to visit their previous schools, celebrate at different places or just go back home to spend time with family and relatives. It has been a very enjoyable Chinese New Year for the SST family. What will next year's Chinese New Year bring?
