Saturday, 25th of January, was celebrated the Chinese New Year, also known as the Spring Festival. The celebrations start on the 23rd day of the 12th lunar month of the Chinese calendar. Usually the festival lasts for 23 days.
At ICOT College we’re proud of having a great mix of nationalities. We always try to celebrate different traditions from other cultures inside the school. We believe that way we can make our students to feel closer to their homes and also it’s interesting to show to other students how amazing different cultures can be. Studying abroad is not just about learning a new language, it’s about living new experiences with people from all over the world. Cool, isn’t it?
To celebrate the Chinese New Year 2020, our team went to all the classes to give fortune cookies to ICOT College students both in Dublin and Cork. It’s believed that fortune cookies symbolise luck, fate, soundbite Chinese wisdom, and the mysteries of the unknown.
You can check below some photos of our students enjoying the day, learning about a different culture and having loads of fun!
