The theme of the International Christian School (ICS)'s Chinese New Year programme this year is 'Asian New Year Celebrations'. It will feature singing, dancing, drama performances, mime and poetry readings, among other activities.

Students will introduce new year customs and festivities in different Asian communities, including the mainland, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam and Korea.

Highlights of the programme include a catwalk with students displaying traditional costumes from their home countries, a performance of the Monkey King and a recitation of the ancient poem Mulan in Putonghua.

Visitors will also have a chance to try New Year treats from different Asian countries and win special prizes in games.
