Ross Students Celebrate The Lunar New Year

Ross Students Celebrate the Lunar New Year
Jan 31, 2017 12:01 PM

Students at Ross School began this week by celebrating Chinese New Year, a widely celebrated holiday in countries with significant Chinese populations. Special events on both the Lower and Upper School campuses invited all to welcome the start of the Year of the Rooster. On Monday, January 30, more than 40 boarding students from Ross Upper School, all of whom are participants in Ross School’s English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) program, visited the Lower School campus in Bridgehampton to teach the young students about aspects of their culture. Among the activities the Upper School students shared were paper-cutting, a Chinese folk art dating back to the second century; zhezhi, or paper folding; Cat’s Cradle, a game involving a single string figure; and how to write the young students’ names in Chinese characters.
