P.S. 46's Lunar New Year show featured multiple Korean and Chinese traditional dances.

Students at P.S. 46 in Bayside rang in the Year of The Horse Tuesday with a Lunar New Year celebration.

About 125 scholars, kindergarten through fifth grade, took the stage to perform Chinese and Korean dances and songs, as well as the traditional lion dance and martial arts, during the school’s ninth annual assembly.

“We have such a huge Asian population,” said co-coordinator Caroline Galan, a Response to Intervention teacher at the school. “It’s one of our biggest holidays that we celebrate.”

The show could not go on without the help of some 30 parents who came to practice with the students during lunch for about two months, Galan said.

Co-coordinator Hannah Ree, who teaches special education, said the “inclusive” assembly raises awareness of different cultures and celebrates diversity.

“It’s a great way to share who we are and get other children to celebrate with us,” she said. “It gives everyone an opportunity to be a part of this.”
