At Carey, on 3 February, we celebrated the Lunar New Year for the year of the Rabbit.

This is a celebration of the arrival of spring and the beginning of a new year on the lunisolar calendar. It is considered to be the most important holiday in many Asian countries. During lunchtime in the quad, Carey students were blessed with the fantastic performance of the lion dance. This performance is traditionally meant to scare away the evil spirits to a bright and enlightening year ahead. Symbolising strength and good luck blessing the whole Carey community with it is the charm.


Similar to the launching of fireworks at midnight on New Year's Eve, the Carey quad was beautifully decorated with the lights to guide our way into the new year, in the form of Lunar New Year lanterns. Our approach to the new year is to let our past selves go and develop ourselves into new and better versions in the hopes that as a new school year starts, students at Carey will be able to reflect on their past journey to approach this new school year with a strong sense of hope and optimism.
