New Life Academy hosts Chinese festival
A Chinese festival featuring a dancing dragon and lessons in basic Chinese greetings kicked off what is expected to be a series of cultural events tied to the diverse backgrounds of students at New Life Academy in Woodbury.
The two-day event was held last week and was sponsored by the school’s international club. Club members include students from China, Vietnam, Mongolia and Sweden. They’ve decided to share with the student body “each of their countries, one festival at a time,” said Inna Collier, the club’s director and New Life Academy’s guidance counselor.
Jason Zhang, who is Chinese and the club’s president, said in a news release that he believed it was good for American students to learn about different cultures “so when we all get out in the business world, we are prepared.”
