Xin Jin Shan Chinese Language and Culture School
Dear teachers, students and parents,
I would like to inform you that all our VCE12 students have completed their VCE final exams by Monday 14 November. I’m very confident about our VCE12 students who have entered their VCE study during covid-19 epidemic time and have gone through various difficulties with support from our excellent VCE teacher teams and parents and family members. I believe they would make great achievements in their VCE final exams. This weekend, a VCE Graduation Ceremony is scheduled for year12 students and I hope it would bring unforgettable memory in their lives.
Our 2022 school year is coming to an end as well. I would like to announce the selection of 2022 out-performed students would start soon. XJS presents Student of the Year Award and Outstanding Student Award to out-performed students each year. In 2022, we would resume presenting the gold and silver medals. The Student of the Year Award receivers would be given gold medals and the Outstanding Student Award receivers would be given silver medals. The students who have improved greatly in 2022 would be given certificates of Best Progress Award.
Moreover, XJS has encouraged students to participate in various competitions in Chinese language learning. The students who have won the first prizes in international competitions could be recommended by their class teachers and approved by the school Principal to be given gold medals of the Student of the Year Award. Those who have won the first prizes in competitions within the school could be given silver medals of the Outstanding Student Award (as long as the students above have behaved well at XJS).
The purpose of selecting out-performed students is to acknowledge and encourage the students who have persisted in Chinese language learning and performed well which would in return encourage more students to learn Chinese language with greater motivation. The amount of gold medals and silver medals are limited. Considering the size of classes, the quota for some classes would be slightly increased such as the students in Accelerated Chinese Program, the non-Chinese background students and the classes with big number of students.
Class teachers are expected to treat the selection process seriously and respectfully to make sure it is fair and just for each student.
In addition, for those who got the Student of the Year Award certificates and the Outstanding Student Award certificates without medals in 2021, if they keep on learning Chinese at XJS in 2023, specially made 2021 gold and silver medals would be presented to them during 2023 Term 1. The 2021 out-performed student lists can be found on the school’s website.
The 2023 enrolment is open now. Parents are encouraged to complete the enrolment and payment process online by visit our school website at https://xjs.vic.edu.au. The tuition fees can be found in the 2023 Admission Guide online as well. Discount would be available as usual for early-bird payment and for the third child of a family, children of current and retired teachers and XJS alumnus (please visit offices onsite for verification).
Therefore, we have decided to have a day-off on Saturday 26th November on the MWN campus, the senior and junior campus of MWSC and the classes scheduled on the day would be postponed one week later. The last Saturday class for the Term 4 is on 10th December.
The Sunday classes on the 27th November remain unchanged and the rest of Sunday class arrangements remain the same.
I wish you all the best and see you on campus this weekend.
Kevin Hu, Principal
