In September and October, the CIE teachers were invited to three schools outside of Edmonton to offer the Chinese culture workshops of dough art to more than 450 students. These schools are St. John XXIII Catholic School in Fort Saskatchewan, Landing Trail Intermediate School in Athabasca and Boyle School in Boyle. Caslan school also sent 30 students to Boyle School to learn dough art. Most students experienced the dough art for the first time. They were so amazed by making dough figures like bees, snakes, parrots and roses with the dough of different colors.
Since its establishment in 2007, CIE has provided cultural support to local schools and schools in other regions of Alberta. On one hand, the CIE teachers go to different schools by offering a variety of Chinese traditional cultural workshops and sessions, such as Chinese dough art, paper cutting, Chinese knots, calligraphy, Chinese painting and Tai Chi. On the other hand, all schools are welcomed to the CIE to have a Chinese Culture Experience Day by providing the students with a series of cultural activities. The CIE has received the visits from St. Albert, Calgary, Red Deer and Yukon schools. The CIE will continue to be devoted to developing a cultural platform that provides an opportunity for the students to learn more Chinese culture.
