AISG Wishes You A Happy Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year at AISG has a rich tradition of celebrating Chinese culture and involving the entire AISG community. This year, while it looked a bit different without parents and vendors on campus due to COVID restrictions, the result was just as impressive in showcasing and appreciating the Chinese culture. Most notably, this situation led to more student involvement and student leadership opportunities that directly align with our mission and vision at AISG.

On the Ersha campus, the Chinese New Year celebration is traditionally called Chinese Culture Day at AISG and is theme-based. The theme this year was ‘Discovering the Silk Road,’ the world’s longest trade route where east meets west. Through the decorations, activities and performances students learned all about its important significance.

Students from different cultures performed, which symbolized the diversity experienced during the silk road’s overland journey. Also, activities were organized by dynasty for students to learn more about their role in this historical period. With the help of parent volunteers and the vast student participation, the celebration was a great success!

On the Science Park campus, students took the lead, as is a common practice in secondary school. Students went on stage in their beautifully-equipped AISG theater, performing for their classmates by dancing, singing and playing instruments that are traditional in the Chinese culture. In between acts, students participated in a fun trivia competition to learn more about the importance of the Chinese New Year holiday. Much fun and learning took place!

We wish everyone a very Happy Chinese New Year and welcome The Year Of The Ox. May your wishes and good fortune come true! niú nián kuài lè
