ESL Camp Update

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Aug 31, 2017 10:09:14 AM

The students have been making friends, studying hard and visiting a variety of Nova Scotia’s attractions. We enjoyed an educational walking tour of Oak Island, had a  shopping trip at Mic Mac Mall, went swimming and fishing at Aylesford Lake, and raced around the track at the Windsor Playland. The TOEFL Junior Assessment has been completed and results should be in soon. Students will perform in a variety show this afternoon and classes will conclude tomorrow. We are heading back to Oak Island for a few days and will have the pleasure of sailing on the Bluenose II, ocean kayaking off Lunenburg and touring the Ovens Provincial Park.

KES ESL Camp in Full Swing

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Aug 23, 2017 10:15:00 PM

Hello everyone and welcome to the King's-Edgehill English as a Second Language Summer School 2017 session. Students and families arrived on Saturday, Aug 19th. It was a chilly, rainy day; however, that did not dampen the excitement of the opening day of our camp. Many enthusiastic KES student volunteers and teachers were here to welcome the new families, help them settle into their rooms, and to start new friendships. We had campus tours, games in the gym, a parent reception at the Headmaster's home, and had a good time bowling in the evening. Welcome, everyone - we are looking forward to a great year together!
