Camp Hill State Infants and Primary School-2019 Graduation Ceremony
Award for Academic Excellence in LOTE-Mandarin 

Graduation is always a tremendously important date in our school calendar. It marks the transistion from primary to secondary schooling and provides a wonderful opportunity for our community to celebrate the distance travelled and the many and varied achievements of our students.

LOTE Teacher Nelly Chen and Recipient

For the fifith year, our school was both delighted and very honoured to have The Confucius Institute at The University of Queensland as the sponsor for our Award for Academic Excellence in LOTE-Mandarin. This award recognises an outstanding level of achievement across all assessment areas in LOTE-Mandarin.

The extremely generous sponsorship of the UQ Confucius Institute allowed a very worthy recipient to receive not only a framed certificate and book voucher, but also an engraved medallion. Her name has also been added to our perpetual shield, which acknowledges recipients from 2015 onwards. The student and her family were delighted to be acknowledged by such a well-respected international institution.

As a whole school community, we would like to sincerely thank  all of the wonderful staff at the UQ Confucius Institute for their ongoing support for our school. This has greatly assisted our efforts in continuing to develop our whole school Mandarin program, as well as, raising the profile of Chinese culture and Mandarin across our local community.


The Confucius Institute at The University of Queensland was pleased to have again supported Mandarin and Chinese culture learning initiatives in Queensland schools throughout 2019.
