Taylah Shields, a Year 11 student, studying Level 1 Mandarin at Carmel, has been accepted to attend a China Summer Camp for 2 weeks in December of this year. The camp is sponsored by the Confucius Institute Headquarters in Beijing through the Confucius Institute in Auckland, the University of Auckland and Fudan University, in cooperation with New Zealand Brighter Future Education Trust.
A place on the camp is awarded to outstanding secondary students of Chinese with a Chinese language and culture immersion experience to practise what they have learned and to improve their Chinese communication skills.
Taylah will spend 2 weeks in China. The organisers are paying for her airfares, accommodation, visa, travel insurance and all study and cultural immersion related expenses in China. This is a great opportunity and we hope that Taylah really enjoys it.
