18/11/2016 SUCCESS FOR LORETO STUDENTS IN BEGINNERSí MANDARIN

As part of the senior enrichment programme offered by the College , students from years 11 to 14  were given the opportunity to undertake beginners lessons in Mandarin.   Loreto College is very proud to be part of the hub for the Confucius classroom in the Coleraine area.  The programme involves both primary and secondary schools in the area.

Students stayed in for one hour after school every Wednesday and Friday and were tutored in Beginner level Mandarin by a Chinese teacher provided by the Chinese government.  In May of last year the following students took their HSK 1 exam and were presented with their awards last week: Antonia Boorman, Aoife Keane, Chloe Stewart, Carmen Owens and Cain McKendry.

This programme continues in the College this year with two classes on offer, beginners and advanced.  Both classes are facilitated by two Mandarin teachers, and the project is coordinated in Loreto by Mrs Siobhan Mullan, who congratulated the students on the achievement of their certificates.
