The Chinese Language Awards Night has been a fantastic way to reward and encourage our young children’s language learning achievements in South Australia for the last 15 years. Every year, almost every primary school and high school in SA which has a Chinese program will join in this event. Each school will nominate one student according to certain criteria. Congratulations to Aarnav Sanghavi (Year 5) who won the nomination from our school in the 2021 Chinese Language Awards hosted by the Chinese Language Teachers Association of South Australia last Friday at Elder Hall, University of Adelaide.
Proudly, our Junior School had been invited to perform at the Awards night last Friday. After the opening speech from the Honourable John Gardner MP, Minister for Education, the chosen boys from Year 2 and Year 3 sang “On the Stork tower” (Chinese item from last year’s Years 1 and 2 concert). The chosen boys from Years 1 and Year 2 sang “I don’t want to live on the moon” (Chinese item from this year’s Year 1 and 2 concert). The singing from these 20 boys was absolutely stunning and showcased the amazing learning we have had in Junior School. Mrs Taylor was invited to attend this event to support our boys and she was so proud of all boys’ performance and Aarnav’s achievement. It was a great opportunity for our boys to represent St Peter’s College Junior School and celebrate our learning with other students from other schools around South Australia.
