York College Chinese New Year celebrations, welcoming the Year of the Monkey, saw a dramatic dragon dance in the College atrium by Performing Arts students Thomas Leiby and Joe Walmsley, accompanied on the drum by music student Niall Robinson.
York College is a multi-cultural community and welcomes all nationalities and their different cultures. Currently the College is pleased to have 31 students from China and Hong Kong, most of whom study the International Foundation Programme. The course enables international students to progress to a top UK university.
The traditional Chinese dance performance was followed by a themed Chinese menu provided by Duets, the College caterers.
