5) Chinese New Year Celebrations

During Chinese New Year celebrations, besides performances put up by the various dance and music groups, pupils are also taught of our school value of Showing Care and Concern, by celebrating the occasion with non-teaching staff such as school operational support officers, contract cleaners, security guards, etc. This is done through inviting them to the concert and preparing cards for them.
