Windsor-Essex Catholic District School Board has asked that you take a look at their International Education Program to see if there is something in it for you. wecdsb.on.ca/international website - or download an informative brochure here Windsor_Essex_Catholic_District_School_Board_International_Student_Brochure

The Windsor-Essex Catholic District School Board is pleased to welcome the world to Windsor to explore all that our region has to offer, while receiving a world class education in the process. Windsor and Essex County is located within the Great Lakes region in Southwestern Ontario. In fact, it happens to be the southernmost region in all of Canada, stretching as far south as Rome, Italy and San Francisco, California. But a moderate climate is not the only thing we have to boast about. We are located in the center of North America, which means that we are central to everything you could possibly hope to experience during your time with us. With cities such as Toronto, Montreal, Chicago, New York, Washington, Boston and so many others within driving distance, there will be no shortage of opportunities for you to explore. In addition, we are only 10 minutes from Detroit and we enjoy all that a big city offers with the safety and comfort of a smaller community.

Ontario students consistently rank among the best in the world; a reflection of high academic standards, dedicated teachers and administrators, and a large investment in education. Our schools are modern, state-of-the-art facilities that offer a wide range of course offerings and specialized programs such as International Baccalaureate, French Immersion, Special High Skills Major Programs, etc. Our International Education Program is open to students from Kindergarten through to Grade 12 with a variety of program options to choose from. We offer both full year and semester programs, short term study programs, and ESL summer and winter camps that are loaded with fun activities and memorable excursions. Our schools offer a full range of extracurricular activities, English second language training, organized excursions throughout the region and so much more!

As a Catholic school system, we are committed to building an environment where students will feel safe and comfortable. Our homestay program requires in-home visits, interviews, criminal background checks, and reference checks before any student is placed in a home. As well, our students and host families are pre-screened to match students with families based upon compatibility. It is important to us that students are provided with a s u p e r i o r education, but it is equally important that they are provided with an enriching experience that they will remember forever. Our ultimate goal is to nurture the mind, body, and soul of our students. If you are thinking about pursuing an educational experience abroad, then we hope that you consider the Windsor-Essex Catholic District School System.

Hey Mike, any way of tracking down 2 OLD Chinese cartoon (characters) magazine or videos? I wanted to get it for the kids.

What you are looking for is 老夫子 - OLD MASTER Q. - Lao Fu Zi - Lo Fu Gee

I created an 老夫子 Old Master Q page for you and others interested in sharing this character with their children as well.
I have quite a collection of the comic book version, but no way to share those with you at this time.

The earliest seeds of the online idea to host Chinese friends first came to mind in the early '80s and arose several times over the years. As outlined in several letters to friends and community leaders I felt guilty at not having begun these pages many years earlier. I am not going to re-enumerate the final resons for getting started here but only let you know that Windsor Chinatown online will achieve it's third birthday this May. My only subsequent regret is that I am not working as efficiently as I used to. I know a few of you think I work a blinding speed sometimes but my guage however is always looking at what has not yet been done.
Looking forward to storming ahead - - in service - - michael
