Chinese Heritage Month - February 2024

Categories: Happenings @tdsb News

TDSB is proud to recognize Chinese Heritage Month in February each year. This year we celebrate the Year of the Dragon: Majesty, Brilliance, Confidence, Leadership.

Lunar New Year, also known as the Spring Festival, is one of the most important celebrations for Chinese communities around the world.  Lunar New Year is celebrated annually, and its dates are based on the lunar calendar.  For 2024, it starts Saturday, February 10 and ends Saturday, February 24. The festivities include family gatherings, decorations, and of course a feast! 

TDSB Celebrations 

All TDSB students were invited to participate in the CHM’s popular annual poster contest, and we are excited to share the winning posters below.

In addition, all TDSB students and staff were invited to submit a 1-minute video on one of four guiding questions emphasizing the importance of Chinese heritage and/or a tradition. Submissions are currently being collected and a selection of the entries will be posted shortly.   

An in-person Chinese Heritage Month celebration will be held at A Y Jackson Secondary School with performances, presentations, and speakers to mark the day. Stay tuned for the full the video to be posted soon!
