New Year Festival 2016

The Chinese Lunar New Year, “Year of the Fire Monkey” was well celebrated with a good turnout with our members and guests. A delicious feast and entertainment was held at the Association Hall. We were honoured to have Consul-General Mr Zhijian Jin and City Councillor Mr Jimmy Chen as special guests to share in celebrating this auspicious occasion with our community. A special thank you to Mr Quoon Chin with the many volunteer helpers, especially the kitchen team who contributed their generous time, effort and energy to produce a very successful and delicious luncheon. The Chinese New Year celebration went smoothly and very much enjoyed by those who attended, even the 5.7 magnitude earthquake rocked with us during the celebration. Congratulations to 2015 NZCA Academic Award recipients Kimberley Gee and Jared Chin. Kimberley and Jared were honoured to receive the NCEA Level 1 awards presented by Consul General Zhijian Jin.
