On this day, the Chinese Language Teachers Association of South Australia (CLTASA) held the annual 2022 South Australia Chinese Awards Ceremony at Seymour College and welcomed more than 600 students, parents, teachers, school leaders and guests from South Australia.

2022-2023届南澳州中文协会理事会在2022年9月23日正式启动。随之,我们所面临的最大挑战就是失去了部分暨定赞助商的资助,并且在十月底因为场地费用问题临时更换场地。面对这些难题,理事会成员没有气馁,我们的营销团队:本文老师、邓雯老师、裘芳芳老师和Mani White老师在过去的两个月里迅速联系并获得新的赞助商的支持,确保协会颁奖典礼所需的资金支持到位。我们借此机会,真诚地向营销团队的老师们说一声:你们辛苦了!

The 2022-2023 CLTASA Committee officially started working for the CLTASA on September 23, 2022. The most significant challenge we faced was losing some sponsorship connected with the association's former committees. We also had to change the venue at the end of October because of the extra charge for the venue. None of the Committee members ever gave up when we were facing these challenges. Our Marketing Team: Wen Ben, Shelby Baker, Fangfang Qiu and Mani White quickly established a relationship between the association and new sponsors in the past two months to ensure financial support for the Awards Ceremony. We sincerely thank our teachers in the Marketing Team!


I want to thank Fang Liu, the Vice-president of CLTASA, for organising delicious and beautiful food for all. Fang spent massive time communicating with the catering company in her busy schedule. We have received positive feedback on the catering from our audience attending the ceremony. At the same time, Fang organised the medals and trophies for our students. Thank you, Fang!

此外,作为南澳州中文教师协会理事会财务主管,乐志晗老师为参加典礼的学生们准备了可爱的礼品和礼物卡等。Laura Kildea老师,董雯雯老师和Siew Ng老师辛苦的幕后工作也是确保典礼顺利进行的重要因素之一。

Our Thanks also go to Grace Le, Treasurer of CLTASA, for packing and preparing lovely gifts for performing groups and gift cards for all winners. At last, I want to thank Laura Kildea, Wenwen Dong, and Siew Ng for their work behind the scenes, which was also one of the important factors in ensuring the smooth progress of the ceremony.

在10月末,西蒙学校(Seymour College)校长Vanessa Browning特批将已经出租出去的学校体育馆收回,免费提供给中文教师协会用于本届颁奖典礼,支持我们举办活动,解决了协会不得不临时换场地的燃眉之急。我们谨代表南澳州中文教师协会诚挚地对西蒙学校的慷慨支持表示感谢!

In late October, Vanessa Browning, Principal of Seymour College, specially approved taking back the leased school Sports Center to support the CLTASA to hold the Ceremony. On behalf of the CLTASA, we want to express our sincere gratitude to Seymour College for its generous support!


In addition, Andy Hu and Seymour Chinese teachers: Jin You and Shiyi Li supported the committee to prepare for the Ceremony. International students and Chinese students from Years 8 to Year 11 at Seymour College (Janice, Laurel, Mia, Linda, Alice, Holly, Alina, Cindy and Dalia) also attended the Ceremony to help set up and clean up the venue.

It took us two months to prepare and complete the SA Chinese Awards Ceremony, and what we experienced during the last two months has taught us that for further development, CLTASA should not count on the alms from others. Instead, the future of CLTASA lies in the efforts and sacrifices of the Chinese teaching community. To be recognised as an important part of the multicultural community of Australia and to be recognised by our school communities, we Chinese teachers must first work hard for higher ethical and professional attainments. 



2022-2023 CLTASA Committee looks forward to the joining of more teachers with new ideas and new visions. We aspire to work together to create a glorious future as we advance in tune to the times and cling to our original dreams
