Congratulations to former Burnside High student Amanada Deacon (who currently studies at the University of Canterbury) who last month won first place at the 2017 JSANZ Tertiary Japanese Language Contest


Each finalist was nominated as a representative of their institution through a rigorous selection process, and 12 finalists from eight tertiary institutions in New Zealand competed in the final round.

Many thanks to the Sasakawa Fellowship Fund for Japanese Language Education and the Japan Foundation for their generous financial support and to Air New Zealand for offering a return airfare from New Zealand to Japan for Amanda.
