Melville Celebrates Chinese New Year

Student Services

Did you know this year is not only the Year of the Rat in accordance to Chinese Zodiac, but it is also a “Metal” or “Golden” Rat year. The last Year of the Rat occurred in 2008!

Melville is a culturally rich and diverse school, with 60+ nationalities represented at the school, it is important to celebrate cultures other than our own. On 7 February 2020 Melville welcomed some fantastic guests – transitional Chinese lion dancers! This event has been happening at Melville for 5+ years now and has become quite the anticipated tradition among staff and students alike.

Below you will see some fantastic photos of both staff and students enjoying the festivities.

Melville SHS would like to wish all members of the community good health and happiness in the Year of the Rat
