There are some exciting things happening in Inverness to mark the coming of The Year of the Rooster. Hopefully some of our super talented children will enter the art competition, it would be fabulous to have a representative from Lochardil at the Lion Dance.
Lion Dance Performance
There will be a performance of a traditional Lion Dance by the world famous Hong Lok Dragon & Lion Dancing troupe in the Pedestrian Precinct on the High Street, Inverness on Monday 30th January at 5.15pm. See the leaflet below for more information. Inverness Lion Dance Parade
Art Competition for P3 – P6
Every year before the Lion can perform its dance we must “Wake the Lion” from its sleep. To enable this we must paint 5 parts of the Lion its eyes, nose and tongue, ears and backbone.
In the past we have always asked a local dignitary to perform this function however for the past few years we have asked the painting competition winners of the local schools to perform one of the above 5 tasks.
To this end we would like to invite P3-P6 pupils in your school to take part in a painting completion “Year of the Rooster (Chinese Theme)”. The closing date for the competition is Friday 20th January, entries to be submitted to their Head Teacher. One winner will be selected from each of the schools and the final five will be asked to paint one part of the Lion.
