Sri Bestari International School (SBIS) recently held its first Chinese Lunar New Year Celebration at Sri Damansara Club.
The celebration which carried the theme “Spring Reunion”, aimed to emphasise a different perspective – the meaning of togetherness and gratitude.
Prior to the event, students and teachers made tang long (Chinese lanterns) and calligraphy art, and baked tarts and fortune cookies for parents, with personalised messages.
The more, the merrier
Parents, teachers and students came together as a close-knit school community for the celebration, where they were awed by the students’ talents.
SBIS is a platform where East meets West, and the celebration definitely met the best of both worlds.
The talented students demonstrated their flair for Chinese arts in performances featuring wushu, fusion dance, Chinese drums, choir and hulusi (a Chinese musical instrument), together with entertaining emcees, drama performances and the school’s choral speaking team.
Afterwards, the school organised a traditional tea ceremony, where the students honoured their parents.
As the teacups were offered and received, both the students and parents were overcome with a mixture of pride, love and forgiveness.
For SBIS, the Chinese New Year started with a bang – a discovery of multiple talents, a stronger school community and shouts “Lou Sang!” to express their desired wishes.
The celebration will end with a vibrant lion dance on the eve Chap Goh Meh by SBIS’ sister school, Sri Bestari Private School.
SBIS is a wholly owned subsidiary and a new addition to the education arm of Land and General Berhad.
It aims to inspire children towards a growth mindset by educating, training and imparting noble values that will help them become outstanding professionals, ethical individuals and leaders of tomorrow.
