On Wednesday 13 November, we invited all parents and students studying Mandarin Chinese at Colyton to come for an information evening. We presented the Mandarin Excellence Programme and gave parents more detail about the background on this initiative and what it involves. Parents were also told about enrichment opportunities which will take place during this academic year. Our Mandarin teacher, Mrs Xie, then shared with parents some useful advice on how they can help and support their child with the learning of Mandarin. As you can read here, parents were very grateful for this evening: “Thank you for a very informative and actually very motivational evening last night. It’s incredibly challenging starting something brand new in any organisation so we really do appreciate all your hard work”. The evening ended on a high note with students performing two songs and a class dialogue in Mandarin Chinese. If you would like to know more about this programme, please read the presentation below.
