September 2017

Here begins another year!

At the beginning of September, we went to Assiniboine Park Zoo to see some local and exotic animals. The weather was nice and we enjoyed the Saturday afternoon.

Every year we have Canadian Cooking and Living Workshop scheduled for our new students. To learn how to live in a Canadian home and use a Canadian kitchen is very important. Plus there's so much fun in cooking!

September 22 we went to Investors Group Field to watch a football game between Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Ottawa Redblacks, the Bombers won by 20 points! It was rainy and a little cold, but who cares? The team we cheer for won the game and from now on, we are Winnipeggers!

June 2016

On June 8 we went to Investors Group Field to watch a women's soccer game between Canada's national team and Costa Rica. Canada won the game and we were all so excited! It is the last activity of the year. Students will soon leave Winnipeg and go back to their home countries. 
Hope everyone has a safe trip home and a great summer!

May 2016

As it is coming to the year end, we had our farewell BBQ at Assiniboine Golf Club. Many students and homestay families participated and had a lot of fun. We wish all the best for all of our students!

Harlem Globetrotter are in town! We went to enjoy some comedy and basketball!

Students' night at the opera! Manitoba Opera presents Werther! Great story and impressive performance!

March 2017

Every first Wednesday of a month, Canadian Museum for Human Rights offers free admission to public. It is the only national museum located outside of the National Capital Region. The architecture always amazes the tourists.

School inservice day, we went to Carnaval Brazilian BBQ Restaurant for all-you-can-eat lunch! Delicious and authentic Brazilian food almost put us in a food coma! :)

Back to the Manitoba Moose Ice Hockey Game!
The last chance to see some hockey before summer comes!

Manitoba Museum! A museum that's so informative and educational! Want to know about Manitoba? This museum is a must-see!

Last day of spring break, we went to the escape room. We were locked in a castle and tried our best to escape. We almost made it, only needed 5 minutes! 

February 2017

New semester has started! Like always, it begins with our Canadian Cooking and Living Workshop!

Festival Du Voyageur! The annual 10-day winter festival, the biggest in Western Canada! It celebrates Canada's fur-trading past and unique French heritage and culture through entertainment, arts and crafts, music, exhibits, and displays. This year it's a bit too warm but we still had fun.

January 2017

The first month of 2017, what did we do for our adventure?

On January 3rd, we went to the Forks. We had lunch at The Pancake House and then did some ice skating! It was a really cold day, -45 or even colder, but who cares? Now we've got the Canadian spirit!

On January 6th, we went to the Real Escape Canada, played our favorite escape room! We tried the Nuclear Meltdown and the Castle. We didn't make it but still had so much fun. We are definitely going back and we will solve all the puzzles!

We had pizza lunches at four high schools, to say goodbye to the leaving students. For the leaving students, we wish them the best of luck in their future, hope this memory and experience will still make them happy in the rest of their lives. As for the staying students, we are going to explore more and more in Canada!
