Among the three entries Ms Zheng submitted to the contest, one was awarded a consolation prize.
The winning entry, “天晴了,” was a collaborative effort between Ms Zheng and our school’s principal, Ms Valerie Gan. Ms Zheng, who is currently pursuing a degree in Chinese Early Childhood Education, participated in the competition after learning about it from her lecturer. She was overjoyed when one of her entries made it to the finals. Grateful for Ms Gan’s support, Ms Zheng believes their song will help children appreciate the depth and varied meanings of song lyrics, reflecting the fresh start that comes after a rainfall.
