I'm really glad to have had the chance to organize and present Chinese culture during the Upper School Assembly. Here are some reflections and pictures of the decorations and assembly.
Having the Lunar New Year Assembly performed this year is really a significant moment for the whole Chinese community. All international students were thrilled to organize and participate in it.
People planned for months about showing Shipley our traditional foods and fireworks. For Chinese students, introducing our culture in the environment we go to everyday really enhances our sense of belonging.
Personally, organizing this event with friends also bonds me strongly with my cultural heritage.
To present, represent, share, and expand the diversity in Shipley is always my final aim.
The Shipley School is a private, coeducational day school for pre-kindergarten through 12th grade students, located in Bryn Mawr, PA. Through our commitment to educational excellence, we develop within each student a love of learning and a desire for compassionate participation in the world.
