22 Jan Chinese New Year Celebration
For one day only, Global Oak Tree Scholars (GOTS) was known as Global Orange Tree Scholars as the international school held a Chinese New Year party yesterday.
GOTS co-founder Veronica Shepherdson shared how the orange tree is special as its fruit and flowers bloom at the same time.
This speciality is why oranges are an important part of Chinese New Year besides it sounding similar to the word “luck” (tangerine) and “wealth” (orange) in Mandarin.
“Like our school, orange and oak trees are resilient and different. If we exchange oak for orange, our name is still the same – GOTS,” joked Shepherdson, who added oranges symbolises prosperity, health, beauty and family unity.
Like the orange, GOTS provides its scholars with a wealth of knowledge, a healthy lifestyle, a beautiful place to study and a loving environment where everyone is treated equally.
To mark Chinese New Year, the scholars – pre-primary, primary and secondary – presented several dances and performances for the coaches and guests.
The coaches later also performed a special song and dance.
The highlights were when guests learnt how to play the Taiko drums – one of the main activities at GOTS – and a lantern-making competition for the scholars.
Shepherdson and co-founder Low Lay Har later had lunch and yee sang with their guests.
