Wolf Creek Public Schools introduces International Learning Program

Wolf Creek Public Schools recently celebrated their new International Learning Program.


The program began with an invitation to 65 students from the Guangdong Province in China coming to Lacombe in two separate groups, with each group staying for two weeks with one week of overlap.


During their stay, students immersed their selves in Central Albertan culture and connected personally with Canadians through Wolf Creek’s homestay program, as well the student ambassador program which connected students from Lacombe Composite High School with the students from Guangdong.


Wolf Creek Superintendent Jayson Lovell said the International Learning Program is the result of student surveys of Grade 9 and 12 students.


“They said to us that they wanted opportunities to experience other cultures,” Lovell said, adding that this cultural exchange is the pathway to provide those opportunities.


The program also fulfills a memorandum of understanding which was established in 2007 by the Province of Alberta. Wolf Creek is the first school division to offer an opportunity though that earlier agreement.


“We are really proud to be the first, not only because of the significance of us being the first, but most importantly to see what we witnessed today — an opportunity for students and staff from both countries to come together and experience something pretty special,” he said.


Wolf Creek is looking to expand this program, including eventually having Canadian students in Guangdong and also looking to include half-year and full-year immersing programs.


Lovell said that are looking to send 30-35 students to China in March, where they will attend school and stay int he homes of Chinese families.


“That is really exciting as a next step,” he added.


Wolf Creek is also looking to use this first experience to encourage their current Canadian families to continue on as homestay families.


“Our goal is to have them stay in that role so when we have future groups of students coming, they will already be pre-approved, have had success and know what they getting themselves into,” he said.


So far, Lovell has enjoyed hearing about the success of the program.


“I have been getting reports from my staff and they have been amazed at the ease of which students from China and Canada have struck friendships and have really bonded,” he said. “They have experienced a lot of different things, not just the sights and sounds of Central Alberta.”


Key to Wolf Creek schools was including English as a second language into the curriculum of the program.


“The language enrichment is a really unique part of that program. We really wanted a blend of educational opportunities with some of those cultural experiences,” he said.


He added that an eventual goal of the program is to hopefully pair schools in Wolf Creek with sister-schools in Guangdong.

尽管全球流行病摧毁了经济,在世界各地激起了民族主义,加拿大人对移民和难民越来越开放。民调公司“环境研究所”的一项新研究发现,尽管仍有数百万人失业,而且加拿大面临严峻的经济前景,但加拿大人的态度变得越来越积极。“这些观点并非昙花一现。它们似乎已经根深蒂固并广泛传播,”“环境”的执行董事Andrew Parkin说。自1976年以来,由环境学组织开展的“焦点加拿大”调查就定期对加拿大人进行抽样调查,以了解他们对这个问题的看法。10月初发布的最新结果首次表明,加拿大人更有可能拒绝移民没有采用加拿大价值观的想法。与此同时,绝大多数加拿大人仍然认为移民对加拿大经济至关重要,并不认为他们抢走了其他加拿大人的工作。近三分之一的加拿大人认为有太多的难民不是“真正的”难民,比1987年的79%大幅下降。Parkin说,研究人员很想知道最近的世界事件是否已经极大地改变了人们的看法。“一开始,我们认为Donal...
