Wolf Creek Public Schools greets summer exchange students from China

WCPS student ambassadors greet 29 grades 7 to 12 students from Guangzhou, China, as they arrive in Alberta as part of a summer exchange program through the Wolf Creek International Learning Program. 


It may be well into summer holidays, but for a group of Chinese exchange students, the next two weeks will be spent with Wolf Creek Public Schools, learning about and exploring Alberta.


Twenty-nine grades 7 to 12 students from Guangzhou, China arrived in Alberta July 16, and will spend the next two weeks with 20 WCPS student ambassadors as they share and learn about each others culture.


“It’s a tremendous opportunity for our students and for the students from Guangzhou to be matched up and learn from each other,” said Mark McWhinnie, assistant superintendent.


“During their time here, they will be learning English while they experience a host of activities, sample Canadian and Alberta foods, and take in local tours and events.”


Excursions will include: trips to the Royal Tyrrell Museum, an Edmonton Eskimos football game, horseback riding, educational tours of Red Deer College, classes in robotics and coding, outdoor education experiences such as canoeing, archery and orienteering, a visit to the Lacombe Corn Maze, and students will also experience and participate in the Lacombe Days Parade, historical events and visit Banff and the Columbia Icefield.


Part of the success of the exchange comes from the generosity of host families in WCPS, who open their homes to the Chinese exchange students for their stay.


“Chinese students are staying with local host families, and several days will involve spending time with the host families who are planning a variety of activities from camping to experiencing Westerner Days to local cuisine and more,” said McWhinnie.

WCPS student ambassadors greet 29 grades 7 to 12 students from Guangzhou, China, as they arrive in Alberta as part of a summer exchange program through the Wolf Creek International Learning Program.



The exchange is part of the Wolf Creek International Learning Program, and follows a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between school divisions in Guangdong Province and Wolf Creek Public Schools. The intent of the MOU is to provide unique international learning opportunities between sister schools. Students that participate gain strong leadership skills and develop friendships that last a lifetime. Students in the exchange represent seven different schools from Guangzhou, and two Chinese teachers also chaperone the students.


This is the third summer program that the Wolf Creek International Learning Program has offered over the last 12 months with the first two programs being held last summer.

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...
