Students and Faculty Invited to Attend Mid-Autumn Festival at the Chinese Embassy
On Friday, September 6, 2019, several members of the Meade High School community, a Confucius Institute Member through the University of Maryland, were invited by Minister of Education to celebrate the start of the Mid-Autumn Festival at the Chinese Embassy hosted by the Chinese Ambassador himself, Cui Tiankai.
There were so many wonderful things for our students who attended, but one of the most memorable was watching Meade High student Shania and her sister Sa'Meara who were interviewed (in Chinese) by the Chinese News which would be aired later on in China.
The relationship between Meade High and the Chinese Embassy continues to grow. We are very grateful for their support along with that of the Confucius Institute of Maryland as we continue to grow our Chinese program and introduce our students to true Chinese culture.
In the 2019 school year, Ms. Jing Dai, our Chinese teacher, and five Meade High School students were invited to perform during the New Year Gala for Chinese and American Youth at the Chinese Embassy. Pictured above, they met the Chinese Ambassador, Cui Tiankai, as well as several other dignitaries. They were also interviewed for Chinese and Hong Kong TV stations.
