Confucius Classroom

Confucius Classroom

The NSW Department of Education and Communities Confucius Institute is a collaboration/joint venture between the NSW Department of Education and Communities and the Office of Chinese Language Council International (Hanban).

Students at Kensington Public School have the opportunity to be involved in art, culture, music and language experiences each week.
