Fairfield Prep encourages all students to attend a cultural experience event in celebration of the Chinese New Year on February 13, 2018.

From 9:20-11:40 a.m., students are welcome to come to the Brissette Gym where there will be a number of special cultural activities put on by the Prep international students and International Student Advisor Lina Gallinelli, and sponsored by AIEP Host Families. These activities include Chinese musical performances, lessons on how to use chopsticks and demonstrations on how to say “Happy New Year” in Chinese.

There will also be light refreshment, such as egg rolls and dumplings. For more information on the entire event, click the above image for a PDF detailing more about the Chinese New Year.
