The Chinese Club
The Confucius Institute at Rhodes University (CIRU), a non-profit academic institution, has started to offer Chinese Club to Grade 4 students on a weekly basis at Good Shepherd Primary School since 2014. The club has produced the desired effect among learners and parents. As a result, the number of Chinese Club has increased to two in 2015, namely Grade 4 and 5, in spite of the shortage of staff at CIRU. The students have been proud to be member of Chinese Club. In the meantime, their eagerness to learn a new language that is so different from their home language, to experience another totally different culture and their active participation in class inspired their Chinese teachers.
