Inside King's-Edgehill School

Thanksgiving Home Visit

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Oct 3, 2015 8:29:14 PM

At King's Edgehill School we pride ourselves on the diverse population of students we have enrolled. Our imagesstudent body consists of international students who come to our school as important representatives of their countries. They bring with them various cultures that we are able to learn from and admire.

It is an exciting adventure for these young people to come to our country to prepare themselves for top universities and enrich their lives. They are able to further their English language studies and learn more about North American culture. Our faculty members and staff strongly support out international students and that is why we want to make their total experience in our country a memorable one.

Canadian Thanksgiving will be here soon and while are students will have a five day break from classes; it will not be enough time for our International students to fly home and return. We are asking for families to open their homes to these incredible students and share with them a traditional Canadian Thanksgiving.

The student will not be the only one to benefit from your generous invitation. You too will benefit from all they can teach you about their cultures and how their days at King's Edgehill School are enriching their lives. You will learn how the ESL Programme (English as a Second Language) is opening up their world as they learn how to communicate better and understand our customs with the many daily expressions they are hearing.

At King's Edgehill School we educate the person not just a class.  They are learning about a new world and are eager to share their new knowledge with you. Consider this Thanksgiving break; opening your hearts, minds and home to an International student. You will be truly thankful you did.

As you can see, Boarding Schools are not dreary places, nor are they only for the international elite. The Canadian Accredited Independent Schools (CAIS) is an association of Canada’s best independent and private Schools.
