Welcome to the Cloud Classroom!

Like the Monkey King, the school has taken to the clouds to continue learning off-site, safely, and remotely.

Our Chinese lessons are for either Cantonese or Mandarin, and are held on Saturday morning (9:30am to noon) during the academic year in a virtualized environment per the OCSB directives for the IL Program for 2020.  

The process has changed:

Welcome to students from kindergarten to grade 8 of all linguistic and cultural backgrounds.  Our program was established in 1980 and continues the tradition of bringing the joy of Chinese language learning to elementary students online during the pandemic.  After 25 years at St Anthony, the program location has moved online to keep the ability to deliver lessons in a virtual environment.

The school board fee is waived this year for Ontario residents.  For out of province families, the non-resident fee, per the school board, still applies.
