CASS Chinese School (Kogarah) has gained a remarkable achievement over the last year. The students won the prizes in National Chinese Eisteddfod, which attracted the congratulations from Consul General Shan Hu of the People’s Republic of China in Sydney. Besides, in NSW, it is the only Chinese School that the senior officers paid visits to, such as Premier Kristina Keneally, and Minister for Education Verity Firth.
CASS Chinese School (Kogarah) aims at carrying forward China’s civilization, especially in the following aspects: firstly, “Qisi(啟思)”, the School’s Chinese name, stands for “inspiring thoughts”; secondly, learn the Chinese language accompanied with the understanding of Chinese culture; thirdly, CASS is not only a school, but also a big family belongs to everyone, and in which everyone helps and loves each other.
The School provides with Mandarin courses in different levels from junior to senior (Middle School Elites Class) for children in diverse national backgrounds, and teaches with the well-known Jinan University textbooks, mostly in Simple Chinese (new words are in reference to both simple and traditional Chinese).
CASS Chinese School (Kogarah) is the first and the only school that teaches students to do Chinese callisthenics to the radio music and for the first time holds an activity of educational travel named as “Journey of Chinese Culture”. They went to Young, 400km to the west of Sydney, getting to know the histories of Chinese gold-digging in early times and the tragic Lambing Flat riots. This “Journey of Chinese Culture” is the first one organized by school in Australia, which is well welcomed by the students and highly praised by the parents.

The Smart Home, created by EnergyAustralia and Sydney Water, showcases the latest energy and water solutions to help communities face the challenges of the 21st century.
Located in Sydney’s Olympic suburb of Newington, the Smart Home not only contains the latest technologies, it provides the opportunity for a real family to put them to the test by documenting their energy and water use, carbon emissions and lifestyle changes.
The Smart Home will:
• generate its own electricity on site, and export any surplus electricity back to the grid
• feature two types of solar panels – rooftop solar photovoltaic (PV) panels and an innovative solar pergola
• have its own ceramic fuel cell that converts natural gas into electricity, one of the first in the country
• include a battery storage unit to store the solar and fuel cell power generated during the day for use at night
• feature furnishings made from recycled and sustainable materials
• showcase more than 20 energy- and water-efficient appliances
• contain state-of-the-art LED lighting and a device to remove standby power in the lounge room to reduce both bills and carbon emissions
• use recycled water, which will more than halve the amount used in a traditional home of similar size.
This Smart Home allows EnergyAustralia and Sydney Water the chance to learn and make better choices for the future. It also allows the wider community to share the experience.
The Smart Home will be tested by a real family, in real time, with information broadcast via the internet.
