Confucius Classroom Performance
On 23 September 2015, students from the Confucius Institute at UNSW Australia’s Confucius Classroom – Ravenswood School for Girls – performed at the Consulate General of the People’s Republic of China in Sydney for their annual National Day Reception. The girls sung two Chinese songs, “Jasmine Flower” and “Great Sea, My Hometown”. When China’s First Lady Madame Peng Liyuan visited the Classroom in 2014, the students’ performance impressed the special guests so much so that the Consulate General asked them to perform for National Day.
Before the performance began a range of special guests including His Excellency LI Huaxin, Consul-General of the People’s Republic of China in Sydney and A/Prof XI Junfang, Chinese Director of the Confucius Institute at UNSW Australia, visited the students in the green room to extend their salutations and express their gratitude. Councillor LIU from the Consulate General also presented the students with plush panda bears to expess his thanks. The Consulate General prepared a delicious feast for the students, and in celebration of the Mid-Autumn Festival, prepared mooncakes for the students to appreciate a bite of Chinese traditional culture.
His Excellency General The Honourable David Hurley, Governor of New South Wales, was also in attendance to say a few words and help cut the cake with a range of dignitaries to celebrate the 66th anniversary of the People’s Republic of China.
