After School Mandarin Courses Coming!

After School Mandarin Courses Coming!

We are very excited to share, that as a part of our partnership with the Confucius Institute, and our new visiting teacher from China, we will be offering after school Mandarin classes to students in Grades 4-6.  This coursework will take place after schools for 90 mins twice a week--a total of three hours weekly from ~Sept. 12th to May 26th.    

The classes will take place on Wednesdays from 3:00-4:30 and one evening to be determined.  This after school program will have a limited enrollment and level of learning will depend on the abilities of those who enroll.  We would like to accommodate those who are interested.

More information will follow in the coming weeks. If you have further questions or want to express interest now, you can email the school principal:   Annalee.Nutter@fmpsd.ab.ca.

There will be beginner Mandarin classes scheduled as well, however, this will not happen until early winter likely.

We are fortunate to have our visiting teacher from China who will also  be able to share language and culture with our entire school population.  She will also co-teach the Mandarin class for gr. 4-6 during Language classes.  In partnership with the Fort McMurray Chinese Society, our visiting teacher will also assist their group.
