Chinese New Year is an important Chinese festival celebrated at the turn of the traditional lunisolar Chinese calendar. It is also known as the Spring Festival, the literal translation of the modern Chinese name. Celebrations traditionally run from the evening preceding the first day, to the Lantern Festival on the 15th day of the first calendar month. The first day of the New Year falls on the new moon between 21 January and 20 February.[2] In 2016, the Chinese New Year is Monday, February 8th, starting seven days of celebration.

Comment by Janet Jenner…..Asha Morgan Julie Jenner. In the first photo of the school, on the steps are my grandfather Jay Fischer & uncle Jim. Also down further it mentions Carl Fischer ( my great grandfather-Asha’s Great,
Great, Great grandfather) giving a speech. Also in the photo with the wild flowers, it looks like my mother Kathleen Longford on the far left.

Russell Island State School was eventually moved to its present site at the northern end of the island in 1926. In 1931 a special school boat was employed to transport children from the surrounding islands (Lamb, Macleay and Karrangarra) and convey them to the Russell Island State School.
