Chinese exchange students experience Canadian culture through WCPS International Learning Program

Chinese exchange students from Dongfengdong Primary School learn different kicks Friday evening at the Lacombe Karate and Kickboxing studio.



A group of Grade 5 students from Guangzhou, China visiting Lacombe through the Wolf Creek Public Schools’ (WCPS) International Learning Program are getting a feel for life and culture in Canada.


A total of 30 students arrived in the country Sept. 25 as part of a trip celebrating the sister school partnership between Terrace Ridge School and Dongfengdong Primary School. They’re the youngest group to visit yet, and are already getting their fill of all things Canadian inside and outside the classroom.


Hui Huang – known as Grace – is a primary school teacher who joined them on the trip, and just a week in, already says she wants to come back.


“I’ve seen and experienced a lot of new things. Everything makes me so excited,” she said. “Everyone is so nice to talk to, everyone is really helpful. I a short time (the students) are involved in class, making friends and experiencing many new things.


“I think it’s quite important they know a lot about Canada. Most of us are in Canada for the first time and it’s a really good thing for us.”


Their first weekend saw them visit the Royal Tyrell Museum in Drumheller, followed by a camping trip in the Rocky Mountains, seeing snow, trying s’mores, and taking in a Red Deer Rebels hockey game.


In school, they tried their hands at robotics and learned about the differences between schooling in Canada and China.


As a Chinese literacy teacher, Huang said she liked the use of peer tutoring, where older students help younger ones learn how to read. She also said she loved the use of student teachers and how  they’re able to learn on the job, teaching lessons and doing activities with the children, not to mention how many subject.


“The teachers in Canada, they can do many, many things. They can teach and be artists and play hockey – they’re very talented. In their classes, teachers teach many majors so they read a lot here. My major is Chinese literacy, so I only teach Chinese language and literacy,” she said.


“The school life and teaching way is quite different from China. There’s lots to talk about with my group and they’ll really learn a lot.”

On Friday, they went canoeing, before getting a taste of Canada’s diversity through martial arts at the Lacombe Karate and Kickboxing studio.


The students were taught some basic punching and kicking moves, as well as how to escape someone’s grip if they’re grabbed – either by the arm or neck – and how to disarm someone without risking their own safety.


“I think the biggest difference is our style is Zen Karate-Do. It was actually founded in Canada,” said Zak Robinson, one of several assistants that helped out with the lesson. “While it does involve Shotokan Karate, which is obviously from Okinawa and not necessarily China, a lot of the moves are in a variety of (different martial arts) – it’s just how they’re applied. The stick fighting move – that’s from the Philippines, but a lot of moves like the boxing ones you can find in karate, taekwondo.”


While it may not have been the kind of martial arts the students were familiar with, and were being taught in a language they weren’t used to, the students were still able to pick up the various moves.


“I’d say, with the language thing, maybe they didn’t really understand all of what we were saying, but they put their effort it, tried hard and had a lot energy so it didn’t really matter,” said Sarah Pollock, another assistant helping out. “They were doing their best and having fun.


“It is important because they get to see what’s similar and what’s different here from the martial arts that they see. It was a lot of fun.”


The group of students won’t be the last to visit this academic year, with students at the junior high level set to arrive in weeks to come.

前所未有的挑战与教育需求新冠病毒已经侵袭人类超过两年,人们不得不面对层出不穷的全球性挑战;而在应对困难的同时,人们又在不断加速科技的更新迭代。疫苗的研发、特斯拉老板的火星移民梦、元宇宙,这些“高大上”的科技话题不再是科学家的专属,而是已经成为普罗大众讨论的热点,同时更渗透到日常生活的方方面面。因此,人们对于高精尖专业也产生了前所未有的教育需求。北美的高等院校仍然处于STEM专业的前沿阵地。越来越多的家长,对于国际化升学的考量也日趋精明,更多地将目光放在如何能进入最顶级的STEM专业,而不仅限于“镀金”以至于“毕业即失业”。根据CNBC报道,毕业生起薪最高的10个专业(如下图所示)全部来自于STEM专业。一边是日益增长的需求,但另一边却是北美高校在这些专业上对国际学生的“围追堵截”。北美的医学院,属于政府重点投资项目,且几乎不招收国际生(即使某些院校招,录取率也在1%以下)。其实这并不是一种...

Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become.要有勇气去追随你的心和直觉。它们总是知道你真正想要成为什么。——斯蒂夫·乔布斯(Steve Jobs,苹果创始人兼CEO)我叫Ginger,是一个来自广州的95后,这是我前往加拿大追寻梦想的故事。每一个留学生及其家长都被人问过:为什么送孩子出国?我爸爸妈妈或许在下决定的那一瞬间就已经有了答案:为了她有更好的成长和人生。但我却着着实实地走过了五年的高山低谷,才明白父母的良苦用心,也明白了“更好的成长和人生”其实不是很多人印象中那种“树挪死人挪活”一句话就能概况的简单过程。(Ginger)他们说:我是差生从小,我就是中国传统意义上的“差生”——因为理科成绩不好,我在班上...
