On February 5, 2019, the first Chinese-English-French trilingual school of the Confucius Institute in New Brunswick held the Chinese New Year assembly. The teachers and students of the school celebrated the Chinese New Year together.
The assembly had a total of 12 performances. Starting with the dance of Chinese dragon, followed by the principal, Mr. Rein Meesters, dressed as the lion, and won the warm applause of the teachers and students of the school. The assembly included dragon and lion dance, dance "Jian Jia", poetry reading "Chunxiao", TaiChi fan performance, Chinese Kungfu performance, piano, flute, erhu ensemble "Sunset in the dark", the song "Butterfly", lantern riddles, presenting Chinese New Year posters, the Zodiac show, and the trilogy chorus "Happy New Year."
It is worth noting that the triplet sisters of the trilingual school won the second prize in Canada in the Chinese poetry reading competition last year. The principal, Mr. Rein Meesters, presented the certificate and award to them.
The school activities were held in the school gymnasium. A considerable number of teachers and students attended in red. The principal, Mr. Rein Meesters and the vice principal, Mrs. Tarah Gauvin, wore Tang suit, and some students wore traditional Chinese costumes.
It can be seen that teachers and students have been deeply impressed by the Chinese New Year and everyone celebrated the Chinese New Year together. Before the assembly, Chinese teacher Chen Junfeng and Chinese volunteer teacher Chen Zhisheng did a lot of preparations. The teachers of the trilingual school also gave effective support and actively used the spare time to practice the performances with their class. The parents have been very supportive of their children joining all the Chinese activities. Together, we presented a wonderful school assembly.
This event is the epitome of China-Canada friendship and provides a more effective way for better cultural communication activities in the future.
