Xin Jin Shan Chinese Language and Culture School
Dear teachers, students and parents,
Since the start of Term 2, the Covid-19 and flu has made great impact on our daily lives and recently many teachers and students have been away due to sickness. We always put the health and safety of our teachers and students in our first priority and strictly follow the relevant regulations required by DET and CLV.
I would like to present my sincere appreciation to all the teachers, students and parents for understanding and supporting each other when some teachers and students are away due to sickness and the school is operating smoothly during this special time thanks to your great support. I’m very proud of having you as our community members.
I encourage you to continue following covid regulations as usual and receive flu vaccination if possible as winter is coming. For the safety of all our school community, teachers and students with positive covid test results and flu-like symptoms and fever are required to stay at home. Meanwhile, we highly recommend that all the teachers, students and parents wear face masks to stop the spread of covid and flu virus.
I understand that worries about health increase your anxiety and I encourage all of us to care and support each other. If you are in great anxiety, please seek help from the following professional advisors.

I would also like to report some events of the school to you.
- 320 students have registered in online Chinese Culture Camp and we are soon going to send out the camp notice to all the registered students. Please check your email box recently. I know some students have missed the due date for registration. We are communicating with relevant Chinese authorities and would inform you if there is any opportunity of late registration.
- 110 students have registered for Chinese character chess competition and the organiser is going to provide training for the competition. If you have registered the event yet haven’t joined the relevant wechat group, please send email to [email protected] requesting for group QR code.
- A special holiday event Chinese Culture & Arts Camp is coming (27 June – 1 July) on the Junior Campus of Mt Waverley Secondary College during term 2 break. Our school has successfully organised the event in the past 10 years and it has turned to be the signature event of XJS. This year, the Chinese Culture & Arts Camp is non-for-profit as usual (low fees will be charged) and the places are limited. Please read our event notice later if you are interested.
- We would provide Chinese calligraphy training for students with relevant skills and organise them to participate in International Youth Chinese Calligraphy Competition later. The training is delivered by professional teachers and free of charge. If you are interested, please send email to [email protected] with your name, age, contact number and one piece of your Chinese calligraphy work (20 places available).
It’s getting colder this week. Please keep warm and take care.
Kevin Hu, Principal
