2022 Tasmanian Hanyuqiao Chinese Speaking Competition

The annual Tasmanian Hanyuqiao Chinese Speaking Competition was held on Friday 26 August. Scotch Oakburn College was represented by over 20 students from Year 6 to TCE.

It was wonderful to see a new category in the competition this year that allowed all Tasmanian students to participate, including those with in-country experience or of Chinese heritage.

Please congratulate the students below, and all the students that participated from the College. The judges noted the high standard of Chinese proficiency, but more importantly, the polite interactions and excellent presentation of our all students.
