Vision

The Chinese Language Department believes that language give learners the world by opening their minds to other cultures and opening doors to new possibilities. While learning the language, it take learners on a journey that improves the way they communicate, interact with others and engage with learning – and with life – at home and beyond.

We believe that through the acquisition of Chinese language and intercultural skills, our students at school develop not just intellectually and emotionally, but it also gives them greater confidence and choice when it comes to future study and work. At the end of the day, we will like all our students to be equipped with confidence communicating in Chinese language and the self-directedness in pursuing the language to greater heights.
