CONFUCIUS INSTITUTES – UNIVERSITY OF CAPE COAST ORGANIZES GRADUATION CEREMONY FOR CONFUCIUS CLASSROOM STUDENTS AT UNIVERSITY PRIMARY SCHOOL.
On 5th May, 2017 Confucius Institute at University of Cape Coast organized a graduation ceremony for the pupils of University Primary School.
In attendance for the graduation ceremony were the China Director, Prof. Hu Liangcai, Ghana Director, Prof. K Opoku–Agyeman, Volunteer Teachers of Confucius Institute, Headmistress of UPS, Mrs. Georgina Aglobitse and the Coordinator for the University Primary School Confucius center, Mr. Victor Fiifi Addison.
The Outreach programme was held during the three-week Easter break. There was a total of 80 registered students who were trained in Chinese language and culture. The school not only helped in the recruitment of students but also provided a teaching venue and teaching equipment/materials. The registered students were put into three classes since they were of different ages and classes. The training programme course were of two parts, language training and Chinese cultural studies. The teaching material used for language training classes was Kuaile Hanyu (Vol. 1). Chinese martial arts training was the main focus of the Chinese cultural studies.
During the three week period, the students studied some everyday Chinese language phrases and a section of the students were also able to write some elegant Chinese characters. The children had a keen interest in learning Chinese martial arts, so in a short space of time students were capable of the basic Chinese martial arts movements. Two registered students gave a wonderful performance during the graduation ceremony. Prof. Hu Liangcai at the graduation ceremony stated that learning a language was a continuous process. He then encouraged all students to continue learning Chinese and not to quit.
He mentioned that very soon CIUCC will introduce a B.A Chinese programme in the University. He hoped that all CIUCC Chinese classrooms established in Primary, Junior High, Senior High schools and in the university will eventually develop into a complete structure where students can start and continue learning from stage to stage. The University Primary school Headmistress, Mrs. Georgina Aglobitse also expressed hope that CIUCC continues with its cooperation with UPS to teach Chinese.
Finally, both Directors of the Confucius Institute at University of Cape Coast presented certificates of participation to all registered students. This outreach programme even though for a short period had a positive effect on the University Primary school pupils. They had the opportunity to study the Chinese language and also had a deeper understanding of China. This event cemented the deep cooperation between Confucius Institute at University of Cape Coast and University Primary School.
