Linden Public Schools

On Friday, September 26, 2014, the Rutgers University Confucius Institute was proud to host its 7th anniversary, and students from Linden were enthusiastic in their participation of the day’s events. Linden was honored to be the group selected to open the day’s events. For several weeks over two dozen NJROTC students under the direct guidance of CPO Mark Velez prepared an energetic and inspirational dragon dance as well as a beautiful and stately lion dance. Meanwhile, eight students from the Linden High School Dance Company rehearsed a graceful umbrella dance and a mesmerizing ribbon dance.

The Confucius Institute at Rutgers University was a gracious host. Everyone in attendance at this event held at the Busch Campus Student Center, participants and observers alike, was provided the opportunity to sample Chinese cooking as well as bubble tea. The performances of dance, music, and poetry were open to the general public, and the event was well attended. While there, our students also had the opportunity to get a closer look at authentic Chinese crafts ranging from calligraphy to paper folding to weaving that were on display.

Linden High School is proud to be home to one of the few Confucius Classrooms in the state of New Jersey, which has been established in coordination with Rutgers University as well as Hanban (the Chinese National Office for promoting the study of Chinese as a foreign language). It is through this partnership that our students are offered the opportunity to participate in a global exchange of cultures.
