Paparangi School

Last updated 27 February 2018

After school School Kids Level 1 Beginners classes are being held at Paparangi School!

Classes are currently held on Thursdays in the School Library. Children from other schools are welcome but Paparangi School families have first priority. Two class sessions are being provided as there were too many for one class:

Session #1 – Thursday 3:10pm to 4:20pm – FULL (the Ni Hao Children’s Community teacher will be present from 3pm though)

Session #2 – Thursday 4:20pm to 5:30pm – Spaces are available and suitable for children 8 years+. Click here to enrol online.

Classes are for 70 minutes and include a variety of songs/raps, conversation, story time, writing and language sports games or school yard games.

The programme is intended to be a one-year programme (that progresses over the years, like a schooling system), so children are not able to just start the same class after mid-year as classes will have progressed a lot by then.

Note that all of Ni Hao Children’s Community classes and curriculum are designed for learning Mandarin Chinese as an additional / foreign language, with no Mandarin background, for children aged 5.5 to 13 years old. 5 year old children may only begin this class if they are turning 6 in the 2018 calendar year. Children attending Year 7 & 8 / Intermediate Schools are welcome. Parents of enrolled children are also welcome to stay in class to learn Mandarin as well (for free!). You can read more about the School Kids classes on our website.

School fees are $155 / term, + $10 photocopying charge. The charity also welcomes school donations and any other assistance. More fee details and sibling discounts are on the Enrol page.


Session #2 – 4:20pm to 5:30pm – Spaces are available and suitable for children 8 years+. Click here to enrol online.


Please ensure you complete the child’s date of birth and any medical details about your child that the teacher should know.

Your contact details are very important as the teacher needs to be able to contact you by mobile and/or landline phone. Other emergency contacts are also needed, as well as names of those who are allowed to pick up your child from class (the teacher will not be releasing your child to any unknown adults).
