Dr Fu, the National Advisor for Chinese, visited our College in August to present awards to the winners of the Chinese Bridge Speech Competition. Congratulations to winners Elsa McCormack (8M2) and Aadi Singh (9C1) shown below, receiving their prizes. Dr Fu was impressed by our facilities and our Chinese Teaching Programme. Later, he taught a Year 7 class how to use chopsticks with first prize of the Chopsticks Challenge going to Leo Cao (7C1).
Dr Fu gave advice on expanding our language programme to include trips, scholarships, culture and language exchanges and establishing a relationship with a ‘sister school’ in China.
Dr Fu specialises in Chinese teaching pedagogy and is skilled in calligraphy and Tai Chi. He supports Chinese teaching programmes throughout New Zealand by visiting schools, organising events and running workshops.
