Happy Chinese New Year 2022!
Known as the most important holiday for the Chinese, the Lunar New Year holiday is traditionally a time spent reuniting with family around good food and wishing good fortune, and exchanging New Year greetings with one another. It marks the largest annual migration of people, with millions of people traveling across China and other parts of Asia to reunite with their families for the Lunar New Year holiday.
Today, Mississauga School of Music would like to share a story written by Heritage Mississauga, “Mississauga School of Music: A Chinese Woman’s Story of Passion” in honour of our founder, Jenny Goh. It documents her life growing up in Shanghai, to helping her family in Hong Kong, then taking a risk and joining her aunt in North York, and finally making Mississauga her home. Her dream to open a music school was fulfilled through her hard work, perseverance, and risk-taking.
As we welcome the Year of the Tiger, we send a Chinese New Year greeting to you, “心想事成” which translates to “May all your wishes come true!”
