“Super Talents” campers experience Australia at Centre in China

July 7, 2017

On 6 July the University of Sydney Centre in China hosted 33 middle school students from across Jiangsu Province as part of the Study@Dushu Lake Super Talents Summer Camp 2017.

The students were welcomed by the Executive Director of Centre in China, Cathryn Hlavka, and then spent the afternoon undertaking group activites covering various topics about Australia and The University of Sydney led by the Centre’s events coordinator Annie Zhou. The young students then made presentations about their thoughts and feelings of Australia and the University.

Overwhelmed by the wonderfulness of the country and the university in the Southern Hemisphere, Xiao Yuyao, who graduated from SIP Jinji Lake School (primary school) last month, said, “The University of Sydney is amazing. I want to study at The University of Sydney!”

Xiao Yuyao was not alone when Kang Xi, who just graduated from SIP Xingwan School (junior high school), expressed the same aspiration and his group members said loudly in the chorus, “I love The University of Sydney!” .

Community engagement within the Suzhou Industrial Park is a core activity of the University of Sydney Centre in China since it was established in 2016. By building a reputation for its strong support for community development, the Centre in China is bringing The University of Sydney closer to its Chinese audience.

The July 1 – 9 Super Talents is a summer camp program tailor-made for junior high school students by Suzhou Dushu Lake Science & Education Development Co., Ltd. (SDLSEDCL). The summer camp features a series of classroom and lab courses/workshops hosted by famous Chinese and international universities and research facilities in the Dushu Lake Science & Education Innovation District (SEID), as well as a wide range of language, cultural, art and sports activities.
