Congratulations to Edward Ye of year 11 2014 Minister's Award for Excellence in Student Achievement - Community Languages Schools

Last night (29 September) at the UNSW the 2014 Ministers Awards for Excellence in Student Achievement were presented by the Minister for Education Adrian Piccoli. At this spectacular event, 130 students were given awards to recognise their achievements in community languages. Apart from Mr Piccoli the DEC was represented by Mr Gregory Pryor (Deputy Director General) and  Mr Murat Dizdar (Executive Director).

The evening started with a speech by Edward in flawless Chinese in which he spoke about the benefits of learning your community language as it assists the personal performance in other studies. Edward then invited the audience to join with him in singing the National Anthem.

The evening culminated in ten students being honoured by being granted a Minister's Award for their outstanding achievement in the study of a community language, their contribution to the development of intercultural understanding and their involvement in the school and wider community. Edward was one of theses ten outstanding students.

Edward is an excellent mathematics student and he is a leader in the school drum corps.

Well done Edward
