School: Stirling Learning Community
Project: Chinese Tuesdays
Level: Gold
Date: November 2019

The ‘Chinese Tuesday’ Project has provided a quality collaborative transition experience for P7 pupils from six associated primary schools within the Stirling Learning Community. The aim of the project was to bring pupils from their own school to the Stirling Primary Confucius Hub based at Braehead Primary School. While attending this transition project children participated in three interdisciplinary Mandarin and Chinese culture workshops focusing on developing employability skills in addition to key Developing the Young Workforce outcomes for life and work.

The workshops were established in partnership with the British Council and Stirling University who placed Chinese Language Assistants and 4th Year Chinese Translation and Interpreting students to support children’s learning and enrich their cultural experience. Each workshop focused on a different curricular area and provided quality opportunities for personal achievement.
