Kingsville Public School hosts Chinese Sister School
- Reciprocal Learning Program -

Principal Zhao and 2 teachers from Nong Da Fu Xiao primary school in Bejing, China will be guests this week at Kingsville Public School.

It's part of the GECDSB's Reciprocal Learning Program which has given educators from Canada and China the opportunity to exchange ideas and share teaching methods. This is the 9th year that teacher candidates from the Southwest University of China have come to Windsor and Essex County for classroom placements in GECDSB schools in association with the University of Windsor's Faculty of Education.

Nong Da Fu Xiao is Kingsville PS's sister school in China. During the year they engage in Skype calls to bring students together and learn about each other.

During their visit, Tuesday, November 6th – Thursday, November 8th, the guests from Beijing will also tour Jack Miner PS, Kingsville District HS and Tecumseh Vista Academy. Demonstrations have been arranged at all locations for the Chinese educators.

They will also participate in a field trip to Point Pelee National Park on Wednesday with the KPS Grade 6 and 7 classes and attend a hockey game.
