Nikole Nikroo, a longtime Farsi teacher, organized an event on Sunday, March 6 aimed at teaching local children about the Persian (Iranian) culture and Norooz, the Persian New Year celebration.

About 180 people attended the festivities, which were held at Nikroo’s A+ Academy/Zabankadeh Farsi school in Irvine.

Children recited poems and sang songs in honor of their parents. Grandparents and other family members came from as far away as Washington, Europe and Iran.

Children also had an opportunity to gather around the Norooz table for a family picture with Amoo-Norooz. He brought gold coins to all the students as a gift for being hard-working students.

The main speaker of the program was Azadeh Farhanh.

Nikroo staged the event with the support of her husband; son Alireza, 22; and daughters Nahal, 21, and Nadia, 18.

“I cannot tell you how much we enjoyed the lunch and all of the information on Iranian culture,” said Maryam Piffer, a guest at the event. “Iranian and other nationality students are so lucky to have such supportive and loving teachers such as Mrs. Nikroo.”
