Chinese-language student shines (again!)

ALBANY, N.Y. (May 7, 2019) -- An Albany High School Chinese-language student once again has excelled, this time at a regional competition held Saturday at the Chinese Consulate in New York City.

 

Albany High School senior Sydney Hardy, a student of teacher Hua Lin, earned a third place for her performance in Chinese culture talent show and an honorable mention for her speech about Chinese language and culture.

 

Hardy, pictured at right, was one of two representatives from the University at Albany’s Confucius Institute who competed in the 2019 Chinese Bridge East USA, a Chinese proficiency contest for high school and college students studying the Chinese language.

 

The event, hosted by the Chinese consulate general in New York City, allows U.S. students to showcase their Chinese language skills and their knowledge of Chinese culture.

 

Last month, Hardy and fellow Falcons Ester Hnin Hnin, Zachary Maycock, Su Meh and Isabel O’Brien won third prize for reciting the classic Chinese story of "Mulan" at the Capital Region Chinese Language Video Competition sponsored by the Confucius Institute.

 

The mission of the City School District of Albany is to educate and prepare all students for college and career, citizenship and life, in partnership with our diverse community. The district serves approximately 9,300 students in 18 elementary, middle and high schools. In addition to neighborhood schools, the district includes several magnet schools and programs, as well as other innovative academic opportunities for students, including four themed academies at Albany High School.
