City College Celebrates Chinese New Year

16 February 2018 | International Students

Chinese students studying at City College Plymouth have hosted a fantastic party to celebrate the Year of the Dog.

The College’s international students came together to celebrate the Chinese New Year ahead of the official occasion on Friday 16 February.

City College’s International Student Officer, Jun Shi, said: “In China, people usually take a few weeks holiday to prepare for the celebration and see in the New Year with family. We didn’t want our Chinese students, who are a long way from home, to miss out; so we decided to host a party. It’s also a great way for other College students, who are interested about China or Asia, to learn about and celebrate Chinese culture.”

This year, the Chinese students taught their peers how to make traditional dumplings and the day culminated in a party held in the College’s PL1 Restaurant. They enjoyed some traditional Chinese cuisine followed by party games and a special prize draw.
