As part of the schools outreach programme, a weekly Mandarin Club is on offer to boys and girls in Year 5 from any school to take part in.

The club starts on Tuesday 21 January so parents are being encouraged to sign their children up quickly to avoid disappointment.

The Mandarin club enables children from a wide range of backgrounds to enjoy the challenge of learning an exciting language. Activities include language learning, dance, music, crafts and learning about Chinese celebrations and culture.

As one of the world’s most widely spoken languages, our Mandarin Club is a great opportunity for your child to try something new and is completely free as part of our commitment to limitless learning.’
