It's that time of year again. The Lunar New Year is upon us and this time we're celebrating the Year of the Monkey. We at TAFE NSW love diversity and the festivities aren't limited just to our Chinese students – there's something here for everyone.
Get out there and enjoy the festivities. Head to the Pyrmont Bay Park, Lunar Markets for some delicious dumplings. Take in traditional lion dancing performances through the streets of Chinatown or cheer along as the dragon boats race along Cockle Bay Wharf in Darling Harbour. Check out all the events around the suburbs of Sydney
So, it seems timely to ask – how much do you actually know about monkeys? You'll go bananas over our list of fun monkey facts.
Given that we humans like to personify animals, the humble monkey has developed a reputation as being cheeky, playful, creative, resourceful, social and practical. These characteristics are also shared by many humans, and can be seen in career areas like mechanic (i.e. grease monkey), hairdresser (all that grooming) and anything in the entertainment industry. If you haven't yet done TAFE NSW's career quiz, try it now. Maybe monkey is your spiritual (and career) animal.
