Who are the winners of the Auckland regional Chinese Bridge competition?

The final round of the 2022 Chinese Bridge Speech Competition (Secondary School Category) of the Auckland Region was hosted (via Zoom) by the Confucius Institute in Auckland on Sunday, June the 19th.

A total of 11 finalists from ten Auckland schools participated in the final contest, showing off their language skills and Chinese talents.The theme of this year is “New Zealand and China, Forging the Future”, and quite a few brilliant insights were brought up by the young contestants.

The top prizes went to Joanne Bentley from Diocesan School for Girls and Will Murphy from Auckland’s Sacred Heart College, and both of them are qualified for the global Chinese Bridge competition, which will happen soon.

The regional competition is proudly sponsored by ICBC (New Zealand), providing generous support for five years.
