Chinese New Year Celebrations

20 Feb 2018


On 20 February, our school celebrated the Lunar Chinese New Year with performances by various Co-Curricular Activities (CCA). We also visited residents nearby, presenting them with two oranges to wish them a prosperous Chinese New Year.

The Parents Support Group (PSG) and RCYPS students joined us at the celebrations where they were treated to riveting performances by Wushu, Chinese Drama, Chinese Orchestra, Chinese Dance and International Dance. As for me, I had the opportunity to perform too, which was undoubtedly  a memorable experience!

After the successful performance put up by the respective CCA groups, students headed out to visit nearby residents, offering them two mandarin oranges for good luck. The Secondary Two, Four and Five students visited the residents in their classes while the Secondary One and Three students were divided into groups so that our Secondary One juniors would be guided on what to do.

Even though many of the residents were either resting or out at work,we still managed to give out some oranges and bring much joy to the residents. At the end of it all, we felt fortunate to be part of the celebrations, and tremendously enjoyed ourselves.

中正中学(义顺)新年庆祝活动后记

   华人传统文化中的新年,是指农历正月初一,俗称“过年”。古人对农历节气的推算非常准确,新年到,意味着春天将要来临,万象更新草木复苏,新一轮播种和收获季节又要开始。新加坡虽然没有四季之分,但新年佳节气氛浓郁,到处都能感受到新年的气息。


   每到新年,每间学校一定少不了庆祝活动,当然中正中学(义顺)也不例外,今年中正就以《瑞犬迎新报丰年》为活动主题,迎接狗年。当天一早,看着同学们穿着鲜艳亮丽的服装为演出做准备的身影,大家都非常期待即将开始进行的庆祝活动!

   

   升旗礼结束后,师生们到礼堂观赏精彩的演出。气势磅礴、鼓舞人心的二十四节令鼓为庆祝活动掀开序幕。精彩的节目陆续登场,有精深奥妙的中华武术表演、精彩逗趣的话剧表演——《阿狗狗的新年》婀娜多姿的华族舞蹈——《念》、喜气洋洋的华乐演奏,让大家听出耳油。作为活动的压轴表演国际舞蹈团和学生军带来的《旺狗祈福》,把现场气氛推向最高点。


   身为华乐团的成员,我们深知所有表演者在台下所付出的努力,也能感受到他们表演时既紧张又兴奋的心情。在后台准备的时候我看到华族舞蹈团的舞者们紧张地压低声量讨论着他们什么动作没做到位、接下来的动作怎么才能达标等。这也给我增加了压力,对舞台的产生了恐惧感。演奏的时候,我的四肢一直在颤抖,完全不听我的使唤,可能是因为我是坐在外面的缘故吧 。


   新年庆祝活动结束后,全校一起到附近的组屋区传达新年祝福。中三的学长们带着中一的学生到附近的社区挨家挨户地向居民们送柑,与他们分享新年的喜悦。由于我比较内向,所以刚开始的时候,我不敢主动敲门。但过了一段时间后,同行的同学那大方的举止及开放的心态感染了我,渐渐地跟着也大胆地去按门铃或是敲门。

    在和居民接触的时候,我们都感受到了居民的热情。我发现无论是华人还是其他种族的,大多数的居民热情迎接我们的到来,并没有我想象中的冷漠。当然我们也有遇到了一两个拒绝我们好意的居民,但我们都能谅解,正所谓“防人之心不可无”。让我印象深刻的是有几位居民还十分客气,发挥礼尚往来的精神,在跟我们交换柑的同时,也为我们献上了新年的祝福。

   在这里也希望大家新年愉快,愿阖家团圆,共度一个温馨的新年。
