Clean sweep for students in Chinese speech competition

ACG Strathallan students Luke Mitchell (Year 9), Song Eun Hyun (Year 10) and Rasleen Singh (Year 7) took out first, second and third respectively in the Secondary Junior category, and Zahra Nand (Year 13) won the Secondary Senior category at the Chinese Bridge Speech Competition.

It was a clean sweep for our junior college students who took out first, second and third prize at the Auckland region Chinese Bridge Speech Competition.

The competition encourages secondary school students’ interest and enthusiasm in learning Chinese and to enhance their understanding of Chinese language and culture.

Luke Mitchell (Year 9), Song Eun Hyun (Year 10) and Rasleen Singh (Year 7) took out first, second and third respectively in the Secondary Junior category.

In addition, Zahra Nand (Year 13) won the Secondary Senior category.

The students competed against more than 65 students from 22 schools around the region, delivering a 2-3 minute speech on the topic of ‘One World, One Family’. Some also took part in a Chinese talent performance.

“They have been really enjoying the Chinese programme at school, especially with more and more learning opportunities, activities and clubs provided as part of our Confucius Classroom,” explained ACG Strathallan Chinese teacher Yu-Mei Lin. “The outstanding results are a reflection of their passion and enjoyment for the subject.”

Zahra, who played guitar and sang a song in Chinese as her Chinese talent, said the competition not only helped her improve her Chinese speaking, but was also a great boost to her confidence.

The Chinese Bridge Speech Competition is organised by the Consulate General of the People’s Republic of China in Auckland and the Confucius Institute in Auckland
