As we all know of the current coronavirus disease in UK, some GP clinics and schools had to shut down temporarily due to the confirmed cases. The school management team as well as the Trustee board have made the following announcement:

  1. There will be no Chinese school on the 15th, 22nd and 129h February 2020. (originally no scheduled school date on 22/02 due to half term)。
  2. During the coronavirus period, our school will offer the students an online course to learn Chinese from this Saturday the 15th. The course is supplied by an educational organisation, who uses the same text books as us and makes available their online teaching platform. They have already obtained excellent feedback. We are pleased to have registered with them. It is going to be the second week live this Saturday(15/02).  The online classes cover Zhong Wen Books 1 to 7, one session per book, which make it 7 classes in total. We'll remind you again closer to the class start time. Please make an effort for your children to join in due time, although the lessons can be watched repeatedly afterwards!
  3. The live courses also include Books 6 and 7. We encourage ours students of classes HSK and higher levels to watch and learn. 
  4. It's a pity that no PinYin class is offered this time. However, our PinYin class teachers will suggest homework  separately. 
  5. Our GCSE class, to take part in the exam later this year,will be contacted by their teachers regarding the home study and homework. 
  6. The Mingham school is planned to re-open on 07/03.

We shall notify you again when we can be certain for the whole school to re-open. Thank you all for your understanding and support! We shall try our best to make up the missed lessons!

Thank you all!


Live Chinese Classes on Saturdays. No school to attend means home study via online!

To all parents/carers:

The online teaching classes for Zhong Wen books 1-7 will start from this Saturday. Please follow the steps below (make sure you have installed WeChat in your mobile/tablet/pc): 

  1. Check which class your child should join and make a note of the live course starting time, which may be different. Try to join the right class by scanning the 2D code, 10 minutes before the starting time.
  2. Get your child's Zhong Wen text book and exercise book ready. Ask your child to follow the instructions of the online teacher. 
  3. The live online teaching videos are available to watch again one hour after the class finishes.  This can be done by scanning the 2D code. The videos may be watched repeatedly within 3 months time.

                        

The above are Zhong Wen books 1-7 containing the 2D code. If any of the lessons had already been taught by our Mingham teachers, please follow the online course as a review. 

This Saturday will be our first online time. Please join the right WeChat group according to the time shown in each image. Please bear in mind the time difference between China and UK. 

Let's make our effort to overcome this difficult time!💪

Notice(30-Jan-2020):Calling for donations to fight Wuhan Coronovirus Outbreak:

Dear Mingham staff, parents and students,

This year our Spring Festival meant to be special. Our homeland is hit by the novel coronavirus, which seems increasingly serious. We Chinese at UK have been closely watching the epidemic situation.

The outbreak is cold however we Chinese abroad can be warm. We all are familiar with the Chinese old saying like “Blood is thicker than water” (血浓于水) Or “When trouble occurs at one spot, help comes from all quarters” (一方有难,八方支援). Let’s practice them! 
To respond to the recent call for urgent need for medical supplies from those heavily-loaded hospitals, we are calling on all families in our Mingham community to make monetary donations. 

The joint Mingham Trustee and Management Team, representing the whole school, have donated a part of our school reserved funding and joined a few other local Chinese societies to have purchased some medical supplies, which are being delivered directly to Wuhan Tongji Hospital. Due to the current situation, especially the estimated coming outbreak peak time, Wuhan hospitals are in great need of more support. We therefore are appealing to you all to make a donation!

All donations and expenditures will be managed by specified members of staff at Mingham. The full information will be published at the end of the appeal. Please send your donations to:

    * Bank: Nat West
    * Account Name: Mingham Modern Chinese Language School      
    * Sort Code:51-70-32
    * Account Number:23724153
    * Reference: Donation + student name (optional)

Deadline: 6pm 04-Feb-2020

Your contributions will be greatly appreciated!
