Hello everyone, and happy Chinese new year!
It’s Lishan here again with another short update on our recent activities! We all hope you had a good break over the CNY weekend, and are geared up for the last few days of school before we enter recess week!
1. CNY Celebrations
Every year, NUSWS will have a lo hei session to celebrate CNY, and this year was no exception. Of course it was no mean feat squeezing 30 over people round the table, but that’s exactly what this family band is all about!
Getting ready for the lo hei!
To kick off the celebrations, our favourite president and vice-president, Bojun and Yuting, topped off the yusheng while our student conductor, Wenquan, lead the band in a joyful chorus of CNY wishes.
Wenquan: “Gong xi fa cai!”
Band: “GONG XI FA CAI !!!”
The highlight of the celebrations, and also the moment that everyone had been waiting for- tossing the yusheng! It was no surprise that there was a mess resulting from everyone’s extra enthusiasm and energy in tossing!
Squeeze and toss!

It was a short but sweet celebration, in which members also took some time bonding with their sections. What could be better than being around good friends with the air of festivity surrounding us? We all hope you enjoyed your CNY as much as we did!
2. InTempo 2016: To The Stars
