Expression of Interest for south Mandarin Bilingual Program


On Dec. 15, 2016, a letter was sent to parents outlining an Expression of Interest in having a south Mandarin Bilingual middle school program for students in grade 5-7. As per the letter sent in November, the expansion of the program is contingent upon having sufficient numbers of students interested in the program as well having enough staff to offer the program. The CBE is working diligently on the recruitment.

A meeting held with two members of the group “Concerned Parents of the Area V Mandarin Bilingual Program”, Midnapore School Principal and School Council Chair, and members of CBE administration on Dec. 1, 2016 where we discussed the Expression of Interest and the recruitment strategies of the CBE. The minutes can be read here.
