On October 7-11, Edmonton Public Schools celebrated the 30th anniversary of Read in Week. This year’s theme was “Celebrate with Stories”.
The teachers of Confucius Institute in Edmonton once again went to Kildare School and Dovercourt School, sharing the Chinese books they chose carefully from the CIE library with K-6 students. Through reading, the students learned about the Chinese culture, traditions and enjoyed some well-known stories retold in Chinese.
Since its establishment in 2008, the CIE has been devoted to providing language and culture support to schools, such as Chinese culture workshops, Chinese story reading sessions for elementary students, Mandarin class for parents and much more.
