Celebration of Chinese New Year 2012

The Senior Deputy Vice-Chancellor’s Office, Centre for China Studies and Confucius Institute will co-host a celebration of Chinese New Year on Tuesday 31 January 2012 from 12.30-2.00pm at Eagle Bar, Bundoora Campus, La Trobe University.

The Chinese New Year 2012 falls on Monday 23 January which starts the Year of Dragon according to Chinese Zodiac and the celebration usually lasts for 15 days. The Dragon is the mightiest of the signs. Dragons symbolize such character traits as dominance and ambition. People born in the year of dragon are viewed courageous, unafraid of challenges, and willing to take risks. They’re passionate in all they do and they do things in grand fashion.

The celebration features lion dance, colorful performance, interesting games and prize draws. Free finger food and drinks will be provided on the day. We sincerely invite you to join us to celebrate the Year of Dragon and enjoy the Chinese culture. You are most welcome to bring your families and friends along.

We wish everyone has a happy, peaceful and prosperous Year of Dragon!
