Happy Chinese New Year!

Opps... I have been slacking!

I told myself to do a post during Chinese New Year, but I never got around to do it. Did everyone have a good rest over the long weekend?

First up is a video on the girls' hip hop moves!

What I love about the video was the beautiful smiles on their faces.

The children came to school in their home clothes last Friday to celebrate Chinese New Year. They looked so different I almost could not recognize some of them. It was a pity the day went by so quickly, that I did not get to take any shots of them in their pretty clothes. I must make it a point to do it during International Friendship Day / Racial Harmony Day.

Here is a picture of the girls holding up their oranges for blessing by Father Henry. Any sharp eyes can spot where are the 1 Love pupils?

The following performers created quite a stir!

There were squeals of excitement especially from the lower primary girls. Some of the girls were terrified of the drums and lion dance though. They even burst into tears. Overall I think it was a good exposure for some of the Primary One girls, especially those from the other races.  They may not get to chance to see a lion dance performance otherwise!

Personally I loved the mascot most! He's the cutest I've ever seen!

The highlight of the day is the Snake Dance Competition. The girls were so excited that they began cheering for their classmates even before the contestants come on stage!

Yolindrea represented 1 Love in the competition. She was very calm and composed.


Although she did not clinch the top few prizes, I am still very proud of her for having the courage to go on stage and for delivering a good performance.

That's all for this update!

  1. Happy Chinese New Year .......

    It was indeed a long holiday. My girl made use of the long weekend to catch her beauty sleep and got a longer playtime but getting up on time after the holiday break was not an easy task.
