Ni hao Parents!
I hope that you are all well. I would firstly like to thank all of our students, parents and families for all of your support while we have navigated through the changes that COVID has placed upon our Mandarin Stars language school. The team and I have had to pivot through all of the changes and I am glad to say that while times have been challenging, some real positives have blossomed in that we have been able to not only offer our program through an online-based format, but also teach students and service families in regional and remote areas, as well as overseas.
As we move towards term 4, many of you will already know that Sarah lăo shī will be leaving Mandarin Stars to focus on the completion of her Master of Teaching. Sarah has taught at Mandarin Stars for 9 years and will be missed dearly. Please join me in wishing Sarah all the best with her final studies and we look forward to seeing her blossom within the field of education.
FACE TO FACE CLASSES FOR TERM 4
I am excited to announce that we have been busy renovating our Chatswood Language Centre and now have 3 lovely spacious classrooms that can accommodate safe social distancing for up to 8 students per classroom. Furthermore, Mandarin Stars is registered as a COVID Safe Business with NSW Government and we have dedicated systems and procedures in place to ensure that we are a safe place for our students and staff to learn and work at. These systems have been in place since the start of the year and have been updated accordingly as restrictions and COVID safe procedures have emerged.
As such, we are going to ease back into some classes at Chatswood for term 4! YAY! We cannot wait to see our Chatswood learner back on site and the teachers and I are simply so excited! The Chatswood classes that will be available for enrolment are viewable here: https://enrolmy.com/mandarinstars
