Lunar New Year lights up Abbotsford Schools

Last week, the Abbotsford School District became a place full of fun and colour as students, teachers, and families celebrated the Lunar New Year. From school assemblies to dragon parades, art projects and classroom activities, many schools throughout the system learned about this culturally significant event and what the Year of the Dragon means.

In classrooms, the learning took a hands-on approach. Students delved into the rich tapestry of Lunar New Year customs, crafting lanterns and exploring the zodiac animals, communicating their wishes and aspirations for the coming year.
