To mark the 50th Anniversary of the diplomatic relationship between Australia and China and to celebrate the Friendship between the people of these two countries, the Australia-China Cultural Promotion Association and the University of Adelaide co-hosted the 2022 SA Friendship Cup Chinese Singing Competition Awards Ceremony last Saturday in the Elder Hall at University of Adelaide.
19 boys from Years 1 to 6 from our Junior School were invited to perform at the awards ceremony. We were leading the singing of the Australian National Anthem and the Chinese National Anthem on the stage at the beginning of the ceremony. SPSC Junior School won two prizes in this competition. The song “Slow Slow Tune” sung by the mother-tongue boys won the “Best Creativity Award”. The song “Fly Freely” sung by Harry Steele (Year 6), Charlie Baker (Year 6) and Max Claessens (Year 3) won the “Best Style Award”. Harry, Charlie, and Max also performed the winning song at the ceremony and made the crowd cheer for them during the whole song.
It was a great opportunity for our boys to represent St Peter’s College Junior School and celebrate our learning not just in the school setting but also in a bigger community beyond our walls and fields. Their stunning performances became the highlights of the event, showcased the amazing learning we have had in Junior School and more importantly brought every one closer. Just like our school value says, St Peter’s College seeks to serve the needs of our wider community.
