MKCSCC: AGM 2020

This is to inform you that the annual general meeting (AGM) for 2020 is to be held between 12:30pm to 13:30pm on Sunday 28th June 2020. Due to the pandemic, the AGM is going to take place online using Zoom. The joining instruction will be sent to you nearer the time.

As you may know that the Chinese School is a registered charity and is managed by the board of trustees. According to our constitution, one third of the total number of trustees need to be retired by rotation each year. This means two members of the board of trustees will be retired by rotation this year, but both of them stand for re-election. If you are interested in becoming a trustee or want to make a nomination for a new trustee, please contact us for a nomination form. The form needs to be returned to us at least 7 days before the AGM date.

Election of trustees will take place online too. Voting will open at 12pm on 27th June 2020 and close at 12pm on 28th June 2020. The link to the voting page and the voting instructions will be sent to you nearer the time. The “counting” of the votes will be streamed online during the AGM. As a member of Milton Keynes Chinese School and Community, it is your right as well as in your interest in participating in the ballot and attending the AGM.

The AGM documents (chair report, financial account, candidate statement and last AGM minutes) will be provided electronically in due course.

Thank you very much.

MKCSCC: Enrolment for academic year 2020-2021

For the academic year 2020-2021, enrolment of new students for Putonghua Beginner (P00) and Putonghua Adult Classes will start at 10am on Sunday 7th June 2020. The link below will take you to our online enrolment page with instructions and procedures:

http://mkchinese.org.uk/enrolment_new_students.html

For all existing students, the online enrolment starts on Sunday 14th June 2020, payment by Paypal or card payment only.  This initial online enrolment phase will close at 12 noon, on Sunday 28th June 2020. Your enrolment details will be emailed to you. New students and existing students who enrol later than above online enrolment period above will incur an extra administration fee.

Please note that if you want to enrol into a class that is not as recommended by your current class Teacher, you will need to discuss with and get approval from the Head Teacher. Generally speaking students from a Cantonese class cannot move to a Putonghua class or vice versa. Existing students in Cantonese classes will not get any priority in enrolling in Putonghua Beginner Class, of which the demand is high, and places will be filled up very quickly. Places for classes will be allocated on a first-come-first-serve basis.

For the academic year 2020-2021, students of Cantonese classes, with exception of Exam Class C11, will be combined into 3 separate Interest Classes, namely Cantonese Beginner (CB), Intermediate(CI) and Advanced(CA) Interest Classes. First reason behind this decision is that over the last few years, the student numbers in these classes have been reducing from year to year, hence in order to make the classes viable, the students of different levels were combined into individual classes, resulting in students having difficulties in attaining their deserving level of academic achievements. Second reason is that the number of exam boards hosting Cantonese GCSE Exams is diminishing. As far as we are aware, only one Exam Board in the UK still hosting Cantonese Exams at GCSE level. With a heavy heart, we decided to combine Cantonese students of similar levels into 3 separate classes, with each class standardising on one single set of textbooks and teaching materials, concentrating on learning Cantonese rather than targeting for GCSE. On your online enrolment, anyone below C11 for academic year 2020-2021, will be offered a class code of CB, CI or CA as described above, this will be the recommendation by your current class Teacher.

Students wanting to enrol to an examination class (Class 11, 12 and 13), please check if your day school will submit your entry for the required examination before enrolling. We are not responsible for making these arrangements.

All students should enrol by Sunday 28th June 2020, or your school place will not be guaranteed and a £20 administration fee will be levied.

For any enquiry, please contact us on inbox@mkchinese.org.uk.

Milton Keynes Chinese School
