On the evening of 20th June, 2013, the Confucius Institute at USP held the graduation ceremony for the third cohort students of Chinese Training Courses in Suva, Fiji. The Chinese Counsellor, Mr. Yang Zhaohui and his wife, the Dean of the Faculty of Arts, Law and Education, Dr. Akanisi Kedrayate, the Head of the School of Language, Arts and Media, Professor Sudesh Mishra and his wife, the Director of the Confucius Institute at USP, Ms. Joan Yee and her husband, the Chinese Director, Professor Denggui Li, the board member of the Fiji-Chinese Education Society, Mr. Liao Xiaoping and his wife, the Chair of the Association of Chinese Companies in Fiji, Mr. Wang Houyun and his wife, the secretary of the Chinese Embassy in Fiji, Mr. Cheng Wenshan attended this activity.
In Semester 1, 2013, the Confucius Institute at USP set up a Chinese Credit course at USP, social training courses, USP staff training courses, various cultural experience courses in paper cutting, Chinese cooking, and tea ceremony, and Chinese training courses at Suva International School and Multiple Intelligence School. More than 200 people registered as students of the Confucius Institute at USP. Four excellent students had been selected to attend the 12th Chinese Bridge – Chinese Proficiency Competition for Foreign College Students in China in July. This is the first time for the students in the South Pacific region to attend this competition. The influence of the Chinese language and culture has been enhanced in this region.
At the beginning of the event, Professor Sudesh Mishra gave the welcome address and congratulated the Confucius Institute for the successes it had achieved. He hoped to expand the cooperation and communication so that more people will learn the Chinese language and know China. Professor Mishra also conferred certificates and prizes to the excellent students, and hoped that they would make more progress in the Chinese language learning.
After the prize giving, students prepared a wonderful performance for the audience. It started with a waist drum dance “Happy Life”. The singing and dancing (“Seeing the cooking smoke again”, “Alamuhan”, peacock dance, and “Sweet as Honey”) were superb. The short play “I am hungry” brought much laughter to everyone. Students and teachers took photos together and looked forward to seeing each other again in next semester.
