    New Class for beginners
    Durham Chinese School is expanding its student intake by opening a new class for beginners for children aged from 5 to12. Building on its outstanding success in teaching Chinese to school aged children in a unique Chinese speaking environment, the School offers an excellent opportunity for children to get started and progress with learning the language at an early age and join more than 50 other students who are currently at the School, many of whom speak the language at an advanced level.
    No prior knowledge is necessary, just inquisitive mind and enthusiasm for a transformative learning experience.
    The new class will begin on 13 January and the lessons will be held on Sundays 2-4pm during School term. Trial lessons can also be arranged in advance.

    DCS Committee members attended a meeting with Durham Johnston School authorities on 11th July 2012 to discuss the letting agreement. The discussions were constructive. The Chinese lessons will be resume as usual at Durham Johnston School buiding in September 2012 while our negotiations with Durham University for an alternative venue is continuing.
    DCS will be charged a fee for using the venue according to our proposal (20/05/2012) and full cost proposed by DJS (18/06/2012), but will be subsidised by a Durham Johnston School grant to the amount of £1600 for autumn term 2012/2013 only. The other issues discussed and agreed upon at the meeting include DCS students sitting GCSE and A Level exams at Durham Johnston School in future and continued DJS support for DCS cultural activities by providing funding (up to £1600 per annum, review every three years), to which DJS responded positively.
    All DCS parents and community members are reassured that Durham Chinese School will continue its full range of excellent educational and cultural activities and service to the community into the future without interruption.
