Chinese New Year School Celebration

The festive mood was in the air as Lakeside Primary started the celebration with exciting hall performances and subsequent class activities on the eve of Chinese New Year, 4 February. Donning festive clothes, any children added to the festive cheer. Everyone had a joyous time enjoying the show and the hands-on activities of learning the traditions and customs of the festival. As the children worked their craft in the classrooms, they got a pleasant surprise as P6 students and teachers made their appearance as the Lakeside lion dance troupe, dancing down the school corridors. Some of the “lions” even went into the classrooms to interact with the children. 

The celebration continued with fringe activities during the recesses on 7 and 8 February, the third and fourth days of the Chinese New Year. Our children were treated to a series of festive jamming performances put up by our school staff and the Dikir Barat boys, storytelling at the library, hands-on crafts and games by our Parent Support Group and the Chinese Calligraphy & Chinese Painting CCA group.
