Happy Chinese New Year, 新年快乐!
On February 5th, Brentwood came together to ring in the New Year with Chinese music and food. The lovely kitchen staff served up fried rice, wonton soup, spring rolls, sweet and sour chicken, egg tarts and much more.
I grew up celebrating Chinese New Year with the Chinese side of my family in Beijing and Hong Kong. Being away from home on a holiday that has so many childhood memories tied to it can be challenging at first and this is only the second time I haven’t celebrated it with family. I’m still getting used to it.
The fact that Brentwood takes time to celebrate Chinese culture and traditions means a great deal to me and I’m sure it does to the rest of the Chinese students at the school. Thank you to the Food Services Team and Mrs. McLean for making the dining hall feel a little more like home on a night so special to all of us.
