CISS BingXin   Eight students from Concordia International School Shanghai (CISS) elementary school and three from Concordia’s middle school were named winners of the prestigious annual National Bing Xin Literature Competition, in which 300,000 entrants were fielded. Nine of the Concordia students received bronze awards and two received silver awards.

  Recognition and special thanks were also given to two Concordia Mandarin faculty members, Ms. Angela Hou (middle school) and Ms. Chen Fuzhen (elementary school).  

  The winning students were Grade 4 students - Lora Yip and Dennis Wei; Grade 5 students - Evelyn Shao, Victoria Chen, and Joann Li; Grade 6 students - Ronni Mok, Danise Au, and Jonathan Shen; Grade 7 students - Victoria Chen and James Zhao; and Grade 8 student Jonathan Tan. The three Grade 7 and Grade 8 students were judged against local students spanning six years - from Grade 7 to Grade 12. “Since middle school includes students in grades 7 to 12 in local schools, I was so proud of what my students achieved!” Hou said. 

  The competition organizing committee was so impressed with the number of student winners from Concordia that it has decided to present the school with a plaque commending the school’s efforts in encouraging students to participate in Chinese essay writing.   Mandarin teacher Ms. Chen Fuzhen will also receive a special Coach Award in recognition of her work with the students. The winning students will travel with their parents and teachers to Beijing in July to collect their awards and attend a workshop in the Beijing Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) Hall.
