OzAsia Festival wraps up + latest community events in the Aus-China space

Guilin, China

Fortnightly Roundup

Welcome to our Fortnightly Roundup. OzAsia Festival has now wrapped up for another year. We were thrilled to participate in the program and look forward to seeing the festival back again from October 20 - November 6, 2022. 

Last week we held our volunteer thank you party as a way to acknowledge the contributions of these volunteers towards our programs and activities. To date, in 2021 we have had approximately 89 volunteers contribute a combined total of 574 hours. This year we were able to engage students both locally in Australia and online in China to help support our programs. 

Shortly the final YCT and HSK Chinese Proficiency Test will be held for 2021. New test dates for 2022 will be available on our website early next year. In the meantime, if you have any questions about the tests feel free to contact us.
