Second in New Zealand Schools Chinese Song Contest

We are delighted for Marsden Year 11 student, Josie Morrison, who competed and came second in the grand final of the inaugural New Zealand Schools Chinese Song Contest organised by the Confucius Institute at Victoria University. Josie sang a beautiful rendition of 让世界充满爱 Let the World be Filled with Love.

I've learnt Chinese for three years, the pronunciation is still so difficult to me

Singing in a foreign language takes hours and hours of practice to perfect pronunciation and understanding and we congratulate Josie, who has been rewarded for her hard work and dedication!


Here's Josie's video entry which got her to the grand final.
