Chinese Lion Dances for Roedean


On Monday 30 January, the Chinese Society came to Roedean to provide the final Chinese New Year celebrations for the School. 

The members of the Chinese Society performed a traditional Lion Dance in front of the School accompanied by musicians playing a large drum, cymbals and gong. This energetic dance is believed to bring happiness and success. Before the dance commenced, Mrs King, Headmistress put a red envelope containing a donation from the School to the Chinese Society into the Lion’s mouth.

For our Chinese girls this was a wonderful reminder of home and a way to celebrate New Year. For our non-Chinese girls, it was a fabulous cultural awakening.
