Year of the Goat
This year is the year for the Wooden Goat for the Chinese who are well represented among all the students of the very international campus of EDHEC Nice. In order to celebrate this New Year, the campus bedecked itself with traditional decorations and the students of the association Ext’Asia, le Pitchoun and Baie des Arts prepared a festive and playful programme worthy of this event.
On February 18th and 19th a live broadcast of the celebration of the New Year in China was organised in the student lounge and Chinese culinary specialities were served at lunchtime. Singing, karaoke, modern and traditional dances like Chinese long-sleeve dance also took place all afternoon. A Chinese martial art show was also performed by the famous Hoàng Nam school. Cultural animations on China followed with slideshows, photo-exhibitions and calligraphy and origami workshops. A quiz organised by Ext’Asia enabled participants to win prices.
