温哥华“小升初”教育讲座成功举办

10月4日晚,由对外经济贸易大学加拿大校友会与加中专业会计师协会联合举办了一场别开生面的子女教育公益讲座, 介绍温哥华地区小学升中学信息,此次活动得到了大温地区百余位家长们的广泛关注和积极参与。

 

 

对外经贸大加拿大校友会会长冯昕代表加中专业会计师协会和对外经贸大校友会主持了本次讲座。他简单介绍了两个社团的基本情况和举办本次活动的初衷目的,之后向广大来宾介绍了本次讲座的学生嘉宾及其家长。

到场的八位优秀学生嘉宾分别代表了温哥华地区各有特色的mini schools,包括UTP(UBC少年班)Point Grey MiniChurchill French ImmersionMagee LeadershipSt. George’s (Private School)Lord Byng Arts Mini, Churchill的Synergy, Prelude 以及 IB项目。他们有些擅长音乐美术舞蹈,有些是体育名将包括加拿大全国冠军,有些是学生会干部和主席,有些能讲英法中三语。

风华正茂的青少年们用他们的亲身体验为现场的家长以及孩子们介绍了各个项目的风格特点、报考要求、考试形式、课程特色、自身感受和心得体会。虽然每一位嘉宾的介绍仅有10几分钟的时间,但是他们用自己的语言和风采为在场观众生动地展现出了各个项目的特色。尤其令人感叹的是,每一位青少年都是那样发自内心的热爱自己所在的项目,发自肺腑地感受到自己在其中受益匪浅。在他们的脸上洋溢着自信和热情。

分享会的现场,我们还邀请到学生家长代表分享了自己的优秀儿女在择校过程中的丰富经历和切身体会,对现场家长提供了非常宝贵的实践经验和先进的家庭教育理念。

一些学生还当场应来宾家长要求改用中文进行交流分享。由于现场讨论热烈,原定两个小时的分享会延长至三个多小时,大家仍感意犹未尽,久久不愿离去。

本次讲座是为大家提供一个信息交流共享的平台,为大家打开一个走近和体验的窗口。具体到每一个项目的详细设置和情况特色,广大家长可以继续关注各个学校于10月陆续举办的Information Night而获得更加全面的信息。

本次活动特别感谢各位学生代表和家长的无私分享以及大温地区各高校校友会及家长社群等的大力支持,未来我们希望能够陆续为大家呈现更多优质的讲座。
