CLTAQ Chinese Speaking Competition 2016
On Saturday 28 May, 11 students from QAHS competed in the CLTAQ Chinese Speaking Competition at the Queensland University of Technology. Over 240 Year 5-12 students from all over Queensland participated in this event. This certainly was a great opportunity for students to appreciate the Chinese language and culture, improve Mandarin skills and gain confidence in speaking the language.
Contestants represented QAHS extremely well, bringing home awards as follows (pictured L-R):
- Amy Zhou, Year 12: 1st Place, Background Speaker

Congratulations Amy, Rebecca, Angela, Victoria, Chris and Maria and well done to all the students who participated in this competition.
