We congratulate Christina (Xuefei) Wang (Year 9) who received 1st prize in the 17th International Chinese Youth Essay Competition.

The International Chinese Youth Essay Competition is an annual event, organised by 13 Chinese organisation including the Ministry of Education in China and the Chinese International Educational Cultural Exchange Foundation and held between March and October. Last year, the competition attracted more than 12,000 students of Chinese background from 42 countries. The panel of judges consisted of well-known Chinese writers and educators.

Christina submitted an essay on the topic of My Hometown, demonstrating her superior linguistic skills by transporting her readers into the beauty of the mountain of her hometown in the Shandong Province in China. Her writing, drawing on classical Chinese poetry, allowed her to express with great power her longing for her hometown and to create a written piece that showed great sophistication. 

Congratulations also to Ms Shaorong Baggio who received a Teacher Award for mentoring Christina.
