The Bishop’s School in La Jolla celebrated the Asian, Lunar New Year Feb. 19, 2015 as students and parents shared traditions from China, Vietnam and Korea. A New Year luncheon with Asian fare was provided and served by parents dressed in colorful, cultural attire. Different New Year games were played, after which, a traditional Korean dance and drum troupe performed, and two Chinese lions entertained the crowd with their dancing on the terrace as students, teachers and parents “fed” them red envelopes containing “good luck money” (candy coins). A Shanghai Moon backdrop was set up, complete with Chinese garb for students to use at a photo booth. Welcome to the Year of the Goat/Sheep/Ram!
