The Year of the Dog came on Feb 16. Toronto Mandarin School held various events to celebrate the lunar new year with families and friends.

At the weekend school, more than 600 people attended the event on Saturday, Feb 10. The theme of the event is named the “Carnival of the Year of the Dog”. The crowd was wowed by the students’ performance and the traditional lion dance. This year we also invited students and staff from different sites to perform on the stage. 14 market stands were festively decorated, where students learned how to make dumplings, practice Chinese calligraphy and brush painting, make traditional arts & crafts, or bought New Year items, home-made food, fresh fruits and candies. There was also a playing station for preschool children to play fun interactive games. Many staff, students and parents dressed up in traditional clothing and made such a festive scene.


Children at four preschool sites(JINGBAO Bilingual Children’s Center) all dressed up in beautiful festive colors, performed songs and dances for the parents and guests.

Students from our Adult Training Center threw a big Spring Festival party on Friday, February 3. We learned how to make dumplings from the scratch. Everyone received a red envelope for good fortune in the new year.
