Cantonese and Mandarin Classes in an Ottawa Chinese Language School Ching Hua Chinese Language School

Welcome back to the Spring Term!

Please bring proof of age (must be 4 or older) and proof of residence, and a report card (if at school) to complete the registration process.

Bring a nut-free snack for your child for morning class, and let learning begin!  Chinese lessons in either Cantonese or Mandarin are held Saturday morning (9:30am to noon) during the academic year in an elementary school environment, with recess at the gym.  As sole occupants on Saturday morning, we enjoy the use of the facilities for free after-school programming and for health breaks to support learning.

Classes are open and welcoming to students from kindergarten to grade 8 of all linguistic and cultural backgrounds.  Our school was established in 1980 and continues the tradition of bringing the joy of Chinese language learning to elementary students each week.

Next year, we approach our 40th anniversary as one of Ottawa's longest running and ongoing Chinese language program.  Some of our present students are children of (now grown) students.

Today, on 27 April 2019 the OCSB announced in the St Anthony library that we will stay at 391 Booth for the upcoming 2019-2020 academic year to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Ching Hua in Ottawa.

The PAC advocacy, staff feedback and OCSB management recommendations resulted in a one year extension of time at St Anthony.  We extend a heartfelt thank you to the OCSB senior management and IL team for listening parent feedback.

Your input is still needed to help make a site choice for the year 2020/2021, and the survey period has been extended.  If there are other comments that need to be shared, send along to directly or via web-form (if you want to anonymize your feedback).  

The OCSB survey is linked below, as our anecdotes revealed that the e-mail campaign may not have saturated the school community as intended.   'Please have your responses in by April 22, 2019'

This website is funded by donations and run by volunteers as a service to our school families by sharing information that might be helpful to students.  The views in no way represent the OCSB, nor do we receive any funding or staffing from the school board for this website.  The program itself is offered by the MInistry of Education, via the school boards.
