Chinese New Year School-Level Celebration Do

Celebrating Our Diversity - that was our theme in 2004. We stayed true to this when St Michael's Ipoh celebrated the Chinese New Year, the year of the Goat. Students from the Wushu Club played the main role in the celebration. We tapped their prowess in playing the season drums and true enough, the Chinese New Year atmosphere was felt throughout. The boys' splendid performance is worthy of mention here.
The teachers too were in the lunar new year mood as they wore red that day. No firecrackers were played because there was no need for that! The cheer and applause from students was suffice to make the occasion special. The beating of the drum to officiate the occasion was carried out by our senior assistant En Ahmad Kemunchak and he did that with style.

Mandarin oranges, signifying prosperity and wealth, in our case, wealth in knowledge and wisdom, were distributed for all. The librarians were in full force to do that honour. For the first time, the students were allowed to enjoy the oranges distributed at the assembly ground.

Students brought in the oranges to share with their classmates.
We had a good day and everyone enjoyed the morning.
I wish to thank everyone for making the occasion meaningful. The school will also celebrate Hari Raya Aidilfitri and Deepavali when the time comes.
