HWA students won the 1st prize (team) in the Chinese Proficiency Competition 2016

HWA students won the 1st prize (team) in the Chinese Proficiency Competition 2016 for Primary students from Singapore and Malaysia. 

HWA students attended the “Chinese Bridge” International Chinese Proficiency Competition 2016 for Primary School Students (Singapore and Malaysia) on 4th December 2016. The competition was organized by Confucius Classroom@Crestar. Our HWA competitors won the 1st prize in the team category with their excellent aggregate performance. Of the five team prizes awarded altogether, this was the highest. In terms of individual awards, our school also performed admirably – Grade 5 student LiHanyu and Grade 6 Niu Haining both received second-place awards entailing S$500 cash prizes each, while Grade 5 students Chen Qixuan and Sun Yijun received consolation prizes worth S$100 each. The winners’ Chinese teacher(s) will also be rewarded.

It was not by chance that our students performed so well. The impact of our school’s pedagogical philosophy and the efforts of our teachers and students alike cannot be discounted. HWA aims to cultivate cross-culturally competent, effectively bilingual global talent. The school has provided a learning environment of cultural fusion for the students. In terms of Chinese teaching, our curriculum is planned not just with an emphasis on raising the students’ language skills, but also systematically incorporated Chinese culture and art. This has allowed students not only to learn and hone linguistic skills, but also to have an opportunity to appreciate Chinese history, culture and literary arts. We have also organized immersion programs to China, allowing students to learn and practice Chinese in an authentic environment.

For this competition, the two weeks of preparation time we had between registration and the actual event were far from ample. However, our students had already laid down solid Chinese foundations through their conscientious and sustained efforts during their course of study. In these two short weeks, our Primary school Chinese teachers Ms. Chen Qing, Ms. Song Peng and Ms. Liu Chunyan cooperated seamlessly, actively conducting intensive training for the participants in preparation for the competition, explaining a range of question formats and answering techniques, scheduling reading comprehension and essay-writing training, etc. Through the joint efforts of the students and faculty, our participants attained laudable results.

Here’s hoping our students can strive further in this new year, and reach even greater heights.

我校学生荣获2016“华语桥”小学生国际华语水平大赛(新马地区)集体一等奖、个人二等奖等奖项

我校学生在2016 年12月4日由新加坡科思达孔子学院举办的2016“华语桥”小学生国际华语水平大赛(新马地区)上表现优异,参赛的14名学生共同努力,为学校赢得了集体一等奖。大赛共设置五个集体奖:一等奖、二等奖、三等奖、优胜奖和鼓励奖各一个。我校赢得了大赛的最高集体奖一等奖。在个人奖项方面,我校学生也有不俗的表现:五年级李涵宇同学和六年级牛海宁同学都荣获大赛个人二等奖,每人将获得奖金500元及获奖证书;五年级的陈奇轩同学和孙懿隽同学获得大赛的鼓励奖,每人将获得奖金100元及获奖证书。大赛也将奖励获奖者的中文指导教师。

我校学生在“华语桥”小学生国际华语水平大赛中取得骄人的好成绩并非偶然。这与我校的办学宗旨和老师的勤奋工作、学生的努力学习分不开。我校以培养学贯中西、精通双语的国际化人才为宗旨。学校为学生提供了融汇东西方文化的学习环境。在中文教学方面,我们的中文课程规划不仅注重提高学生的中文语言技能,还系统地安排了中国文化、演艺与戏剧等内容。使学生在中文课堂上不仅可以学习和提高听说读写等语言技能,还有机会了解中国历史文化与文学艺术。我们也组织学生去中国浸濡,让学生在真正的中文环境中学习中文,运用中文。

这次比赛,我们组织学生报名之后,准备比赛的时间只有两周,并不充裕。但我们的学生平时刻苦学习,已经打下了坚实的华语基础。在短短的两周之内,我们小学部的中文教师陈青、宋鹏和柳春燕通力合作,积极为参赛学生进行赛前强化训练。讲解各种题型和答题技巧,安排学生进行阅读理解练习和作文训练等等。在师生的共同努力下,我们的参赛学生取得了亮丽的成绩。

希望我校的学生在新的一年里再接再厉,取得更优异成绩。
