Five of our students travelled to Manchester to take part in the National Mandarin Reading Competion of 2013, organised by the UK Association for the Promotion of Chinese Education (UKAPCE). Lewis Henshaw and Alice Liu were awarded with outstanding performance certificates. Isabel Zhu received the 2nd prize and both David He and Tin Yu Li were awarded with the first prize. Congratulations to the winners, we're very proud of you!
This year five of our students received a gold award for the efforts they've put in by attending Sheffield Chinese school. A special ceremony was held
at the University of Sheffield Hallam to celebrate the students' achievements.
The award scheme was set up by the Home Language Accreditation Project (HoLA), a partnership project between Languages Sheffield, King Edward VII
School, the Ethnic Minority and Traveller Achievement Service (EMTAS) and
Sheffield Children’s University. The aim of HOLA is to build strong links between complementary schools and mainstream schools, because HOLA recognises the values of engaging in extra-curricular activities outside of mainstream school, and speaking multiple languages. HOLA endorses the multilingualism and diversity of our students by supporting them to achieve a national accreditation in their home language.
The students who achieved a Gold Award this year were:
Congratulations to all of them!
