History and Development
Aberdeen Chinese School was founded by Ms Liu Huang and Ms Li Ming in 1991 to promote Chinese language and culture in Aberdeen city and surrounding areas. For many years, Ms Liping Yan headed the school as a community group.
In 2009, the School developed to be a registered charity in Scotland. As a non-profit organisation, the School is independent of any political body but works in co-operation with SQA, Learning and Teaching in Scotland, local government, mainstream schools and other organizations in the third and private sector. It has received substantial support and sponsorship from Aberdeen City Council.
The mission of the School is to make Chinese language and culture education accessible to people from different communities. Apart from educational activities, the School also organizes regular different cultural and social activities to provide the Chinese community and other communities with the opportunity to get together and improve mutual understanding. Annual big scale events include Chinese Moon Festival, Chinese New Year Festival and Summer Outing.
The school is closely working with children and young people who have Chinese backgrounds and are experiencing different disadvantages: language barrier, self esteem, self confidence, aspiration, social networks, new life opportunities or skills.
