Chinese students visit Wolf Creek Public Schools

Lacombe-area families and students are putting out the welcome mat for students from China who are participating in a cultural exchange program with Wolf Creek Public Schools.


On Thursday a ceremony was held at Lacombe Composite High School to say goodbye to a group of 33 Chinese students who leave Friday after spending a week, and to welcome a group of 31 students that will be here for 12 days.


Wolf Creek Public Schools is the first jurisdiction in Alberta to develop a student exchange program with the district of Li Wan in Guangzhou, China. In March, 20 to 30 high school students from Wolf Creek will go to China.


Li Wan is one of 10 districts in Guangzhou, the capital city of Guangdong province, and Guangdong is China’s most populated province with 110 million people.


“It’s a great learning opportunity for both groups of students,” said Mark McWhinnie, assistant superintendent with Wolf Creek.


Twenty-five local students are working as ambassadors to interact with the visiting students.


He said Chinese students start learning English in Grade 1, but they are often nervous about using English and the ambassadors are helping to put them at ease.


“It’s going very, very well and one of the reasons it’s going so well is because we have those student ambassadors,” McWhinnie said on Thursday.


The visitors stay with host families who take them sight seeing and to events. They also participate in activities organized by Wolf Creek. On Saturday students will be in the Lacombe Days parade.

“We went to the Lacombe Corn Maze yesterday. That was a big hit.”


McWhinnie said driving on a gravel road to the maze also seemed to be a new experience for them.


“They all kind of giggled and were fascinated with the gravel road. All the things we kind of take for granted are the things they enjoy and point out and ask us what they are.”

说到加拿大,有人想起枫叶,有人想起自然风光,有人想起文化多样性;其中一样让无数人趋之若鹜的,是加拿大的福利体系。在众多福利中,最吸引新晋父母的,便是加拿大的儿童能够得到牛奶金。在疫情冲击之前,6 岁以下儿童每人每年“牛奶金”最高额为 6600 加元,6-17 岁每人每年最高额 5600加元。而在疫情冲击之下,为帮助国民重回岗位、更充裕地承担托儿所费用,加拿大政府于昨日(5月12日)宣布,家长们今年可申请额外1200加元牛奶金。新增部分的牛奶金将于5月28日、7月30日及10月30日分三次打入家长账户。资料来源:https://www.canada.ca/en/revenue-agency/news/2021/05/up-to-1200-more-per-child-for-16-million-families-across-canada.html除牛奶金外,加拿大政府投入大量资金扶植幼教...
