Thank you for a smooth start to the new school year! Over the past month, we have thoroughly enjoyed having your child back learning with us at The Chinese Academy (TCA). 

English Parent Orientation on Wednesday, October 27th. A lot of tips to assist your students with their Chinese courses will be shared!

TCA classes will be online until at the earliest, January 2022.

  1. Our number one priority is to ensure our students, families and staff are safe and healthy. After careful consideration, we have decided not to go back to in-person learning until at the earliest, January 2022. We will then review.
  2. There is no school on Saturday, October 9th. We hope you enjoy the Thanksgiving long weekend!
  3. We had a very successful student orientation for our Grade 7 to 12 students on Saturday, October 2nd. We appreciated all of the students’ questions.
  4. The English Parent Orientation will be on Wednesday, October 27th from 6:00pm to 7:00pm. We hope all of you are able to attend. There will be a lot of tips on how to support your child in learning Chinese. A reminder and Zoom link will be sent out closer to the date.
  5. Please continue to review the Student Code of Conduct with your child prior to class. Some important reminders include keeping their cameras on for the entire class time (except during break), and ensuring there are no virtual Zoom backgrounds displayed. We are already very impressed by all of our students attending respectfully to our TCA Code of Conduct.
  6. The Media Consent Form email has already been sent out to families. If you do not consent, you must state it in the digital form. If we do not receive your forms back by Friday, October 15th, this indicates that you provide us with media consent.
  7. If you referred a student to attend The Chinese Academy as per past practice, you can collect your $10 referral gift card at the office. Your very appreciated $10 gift card will be available at our office once all of the present pandemic restrictions are removed.
  8. We will be postponing Picture Day. We can’t wait until all of us are in person and can take these beautiful pictures for your children!
  9. We are now offering Adult Mandarin classes. Please register on our website as soon as possible. When we have enough parents who are interested in this class, we will inform you of the start date.
  10. We also offer Mathematics and English tutorial classes to students. They are held between 12:00pm to 1:00pm on Saturdays. Please register on our website if your child is requiring extra support in Mathematics and/or English.
