Another fun filled get together with many families and former classmates getting together to celebrate the year of the Rooster and enjoy the Chinese New Year festivities. For the past few years the judging booth has been setup right in front of the school and everyone was able to see the parade up close from the school windows and on TV. The evening weather was perfect.

Although St Mary’s Day School was not in the parade this year, Drums and Bell Corp and Chinese School carried on the long legacy of marching in the Chinese New Year Parade.

The sound of two 3 min long strands of firecrackers echoed throughout the school to rid of the evil spirits and ring in the New Year.
