In a year during which Red Bank Regional High School has experienced several sport championships in football, girls’ cross country, girls’ swimming and girls’ tennis, it is only fitting that the 2015-2016 session concludes with the recognition of RBR’s Athletic Director Del Dal Pra as Jersey Sporting News’ pick for Athletic Director of the Year.

Del Dal Pra came to RBR eight years ago. During that time he has been able to establish feeder teams to the high school program with the Little Bucs Program. He succeeded, in partnership with parent groups, to finally put lights on the football stadium.  This year, he helped fulfill a long-standing school-wide need and opened a state-of-the art fitness center, something which will benefit the health of RBR students for years to come.

On January 31, the Day of the Chinese New Year, Red Bank Regional High School was festooned with signature red paper decorations welcoming the multi-talented Jersey Shore Chinese School students to celebrate and educate RBR students on Chinese custom and lore.

The celebration of The Year of the Horse was part of a policy at RBR, where Chinese has been offered as a course for the past six years, to “immerse our students in the culture of the languages they study,” in the words of RBR World Language Supervisor Rob Donohoe.

The program was organized by the RBR World Language Chinese teacher Chinyun Wu, who is also a long-standing teacher at the Jersey Shore Chinese School. During the event, which was aptly emceed by RBR Chinese language students Kobe Miller and Kevin Zheng, an amazingly agile giant paper lion danced upon the auditorium stage with footwork mimicking a prancing beast.

Kevin, who was born in China and took the RBR Chinese class to learn Mandarin, since he speaks the dialect of his small village.  Kevin and his fellow students were incredibly impressed with the Chinese school’s performance and states, “They got the audience really involved and I think it will encourage more students to take Chinese next year.”
