Pupils from Parklands High School in Chorley have been celebrating in international style to mark the Chinese New Year.

Youngsters from across the specialist language college took part in sessions to learn traditional Far Eastern skills like calligraphy and lion dancing.

Every pupil was given a fortune cookie and had chance to hear the beat of a traditional Chinese drum.

Parklands has a long tradition of working closely with communities both local and far-flung, as staff and visitors help to bring other cultures closer to home.

The school, which has more than 1,000 pupils, last year received an ‘Investing In Community Engagement’ (ICE) Award from the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust (SSAT).

The accolade was in recognition of other school’s work with the local, national and international communities.
