Ushering the Year of the Dragon with Postgraduates
An early celebration of Chinese New Year
Chinese New Year is just around the corner and many of us are gearing up to prepare for the annual celebration. For the Chinese, it is a celebration deeply rooted in culture and tradition.
At the Graduate School, our tradition involves coming together to celebrate this festive occasion with our postgraduate students. This year, our joyous gathering took place on 31 January, a prelude to the upcoming holidays and an auspicious start to the Year of the Dragon.
The celebratory luncheon witnessed a lively turnout of our postgraduate community, indulging in a delectable array of local dishes that added a flavourful touch to the festivities.
A warm welcome address was delivered by Professor Maniam Kaliannan, Associate Dean of Graduate School, setting the tone for a successful year ahead.
A cheer to an auspicious and prosperous year
As we usher in the Year of the Dragon, we look forward to a year filled with growth, success, and a continued sense of community. May the festivities of this early celebration set the stage for a successful and fulfilling year for our postgraduate community.
Wishing everyone an abundance of prosperity, good fortune, and happiness in the Year of the Dragon! 🐉🎊
