Chinese New Year 2016

CAV Chinese School will be celebrating the Year of the Monkey On Sunday 21February 2016



In June, 1982, when the decision was made to have a CAV School teaching Chinese Language and Culture, An Education and Cultural Sub-committee (ECS) was formed to oversee the running of the school. The following year, ECS took over the entire operation of the school, from employment of teachers to locking up classrooms at the end of the day. Since then, the School had 14 years of happy working relationship with Nunawading High School in Forest Hill. In January 1996, CAV School moved to its new home in Wantirna, where classes were organised into morning and afternoon sessions. Two years ago, 2 portable classrooms were added to the existing row of classrooms.


The main objectives of the School are:

  1. To teach students to listen, speak, read and write Chinese in the modern simplified Chinese characters

  2. To introduce Chinese culture, history, geography and philosophy to students

  3. To provide students with a better understanding of the Chinese heritage

The guiding principle is to provide a stimulating, supportive, challenging and safe environment for teaching and learning of Chinese Language and Culture. The School is committed to help each and every student to reach his or her full potential. Students are assisted not only to achieve academic excellence but given encouragement to continue to appreciate Chinese culture throughout their lives.”
