The stars shone brightly on the evening of April 9 — and a variety of dancers, singers, musicians, and comedians delighted a packed auditorium — during the 2015  Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School Talent Show.

The 23 acts included solo musical and dance performances, group musical and dance performances, and a group routine based on a Monty Python comedy sketch. The student-musicians covered popular artists such as the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Alt J, and the Grateful Dead, and presented their own compositions as well.

Proceeds from the show, organized by the Student Government Association (SGA) of Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School and presented on the evening of April 9, benefitted the American Cancer Society.

“I think this was the best show yet,” said RFH World Languages Teacher and SGA Advisor Yannell Maglione. “We were also able to raise $2,000 for a wonderful foundation.”

Teachers Hu Yuebo and Zheng Minfeng recently had an unusually long commute to school. They traveled from Hanzhou, China for a week-long visit to Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School.

While at RFH the two observed lessons, interacted with students and teachers, enjoyed dinners in their honor, participated in a bowling event, and even ate lunch in the RFH cafeteria.

“The chicken fingers were highly recommended by the students,” said Yuebo, who teaches English at Hanzhou Entel Foreign Language School, where Minfeng teaches Chinese and is the Vice Principal.

But this visit was about a lot more than chicken fingers. It represented a big step forward for the Study Abroad Program at RFH, which received its official approval by the RFH School Board at a meeting on November 12.

The inaugural study abroad trip for the new language immersion-based program, which took root at the high school in 2007, is planned for April 9-21, 2014.  That is when eleven RFH students will travel with two chaperones to the Hanzhou Entel Foreign Language School in Hanzhou, China.
