Chinese Language School Ottawa Ching Hua Chinese Language School

 The International Languages Program held at St Anthony School

Our Saturday morning classes for Cantonese and Mandarin are funded by the Ministry of Education's International Languages Program, staffed by the OCSB and held at St Anthony School.

Starting as a registered non-profit before joining the Heritage Program at the OCSB, we have been helping students acquire Cantonese since 1980, and Mandarin since 2011.  

Our program is non-denominational, welcomes non-native speakers, and is open on Saturday mornings during the academic year.  The elementary program hosted at St Anthony School is located in downtown Ottawa, near the heart of Chinatown, at 391 Booth Street.

Classrooms at St Anthony School are outfitted with SmartBoard screens and have child-sized desks and chairs suitable for each age and stage from JK to grade 8.   

Each teacher has a Dell laptop from the parent council's corporate donor Telus.  Software for SmartNotebook is from the OCSB.
