On January 31, the Red Bank Regional High School community welcomed The Jersey Shore Chinese School students to their school, to usher in the Year of The Monkey. RBR Chinese students emceed the festive celebration, in sharing the Chinese cultural education experience with their peers.
The program was a feast of color, pagentry and skill. Chinese students displayed their talents with the Chinese yo-yo; beautifully festooned dancers performed an elegant folk dance, while others manipulated the serpentine dragon in his traditional dance. RBR Principal Risa Clay courageously fed the red envelope to the Lion, which signifies warding away evil spirits and bringing good luck.
