St Peters Celebrates the Lunar New Year

On Friday 16 February, the Multicultural Committee celebrated the Lunar New Year with students. Each year, there is a different animal in the 12-year cycle. This year is the year of the dog; the coming of fortune.

The celebrations began with an incredible performance by Chinese drummers and dragon dancers at lunchtime. The exciting atmosphere was complimented with the distribution of red envelopes containing gold coins, which warded off bad spirits and blessed the receiver with good luck. 

Overall, the day was a success with lots of students embracing the New Year through joining us and the Chinese performers in the Chapel Forecourt.
