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.  

Intake is throughout the year, so it's not too late to join!  The process has changed:

Apply for Support for Learners funding
The Ministry of Education has funding support for elementary students.  Deadline Jan 15/2021.

We heard from the manager of the continuing and community education, as of August 18th, 2020, that the OCSB plans to:
  1. "Continue the St. Anthony school location for International Languages for this school year. Plans for 2021-2022 will be to move the program to Notre Dame High School.
  2. Classes will be offered online in a virtual academy until further notice. We hope to be back in schools later in the year. The online IL classes program offered in the Spring and in the IL Summer program have been very well attended and supported by students and families in each language group".
