Chinese New Year Celebration

The annual celebration of the Chinese New Year in mid-winter is a tradition that allows students and faculty to embrace a foreign culture and celebrate Rumsey's diversity. Farmen Hall was decorated with paper lanterns, paper cuttings and couplets to create an authentic backdrop for a memorable meal. The students enjoyed hearing their fellow classmates and their parents explain the Chinese calendar, the lore behind zodiac animal signs representing each year, the significance of 'the year of the rat' and the symbolism of good fortune and joy found in the color red. Rumsey extends its sincere gratitude to the families who traveled from China to share their holiday and a delicious meal with the School community.
