RBR Celebrates the Year of the Rooster with Jersey Shore Chinese School
RBR Chinese students introduced the first act, the Lion dancers informing their fellow students, “The lion dance has been part of the Chinese culture of thousands of years and represents power, wisdom, fortune, longevity and good luck.”
The audience enjoyed the pageantry of the performances and particularly marveled over the amazing skill that Jersey Shore Chinese students demonstrated with their giant yoyos. RBR Assistant Principal Rob Donohoe, Supervisor of the World Language Department, joined them onstage, competently manipulating the Chinese yoyo.
RBR offers two levels of Chinese as well as French, Italian and Spanish in its World Language program. The invitation to the Chinese School was made possible by the RBR Chinese World Language Teacher, Chinyun Wu, who also teaches at the Jersey Shore Chinese School in Holmdel.
She states, “I am always happy to be able to bring our two schools together to celebrate the Chinese culture and wish all happiness in the New Year.”
