China Challenge 2014

It’s been a busy start to Term 4 at Ararat Primary School 800 with our Grade 3-6 students winning First Prize for their collective Chinese Language (characters and pinyin) entries in the regional ‘China Challenge’ Competition. Students were very happy to have the Cath Mc Clenehan Memorial Shield returned to pride of place in our school corridor, near our staff room. Ararat PS 800 students had previously won this shield in 2012. If you happen to be at our school come and have a look at the shield. We’re very excited to have won First Prize and we’re looking forward to next year’s competition as it’s theme is the 12 Symbolic Animals (One of our favourite topics!!)Our thanks to the ‘China Challenge’ organising committee for providing this opportunity for local students and for arranging the awards presentation ceremony at the Ballarat Town Hall.
