Blessing the Lions at Lower School Assembly
At an assembly ahead of Mass Greeting 2017, Music and Movement Teacher Susan Kennedy shared a special ceremony with Lower School students to bless the two new lions for the Lion Dance (bringing CAIS’s “pride” to a total of five lions).
With assistance from veteran teachers Mr. Wright and Zhu Laoshi as well as middle school students, Ms. Kennedy talked the audience through the ritual to bless the lions and ensure they will bring good luck. Middle School dancers and musicians helped bring the lions to life.
Special thanks to CAIS parent Patricia Martell for filming and sharing this very special moment!
