June 29, 2017 - Three Kindergarten teachers from the Sudbury Catholic District School Board will be travelling to China to support a student Summer Camp this coming August. At the invitation of Jinguo, Rosemary Tripodi, Alice Desormeaux and Lina Reale will be travelling to Yunman, China to participate in Kunming Jinguo Kindergarten Summer Camp from August 11 to August 20th, 2017.

The Sudbury Catholic District School Board has established a partnership with Jinguo as part of the International Student Program. The program helps to provide learning opportunities for both students and teachers involved. The teacher’s presence in Yunman will provide an opportunity for them to share best practices in Canadian kindergarten classrooms, as well as learn from their peers at Jinguo. Each teacher will be paired with one or two Chinese teachers and work as a team throughout the experience at the Camp.

“We believe that our common enthusiasm toward education, foreign languages and cultures will be enhanced with this visit,” said Rosemary Tripodi, Kindergarten teacher at Holy Trinity Catholic Elementary School. “It is also a great opportunity for us to learn more about the Chinese culture and to share best practices for the advancement of both our education systems.”

"I feel most fortunate to have this opportunity to travel to China and learn about their culture while collaborating with Kindergarten educators,” said Lina Reale, Kindergarten Teacher at Holy Cross Elementary School. “ I am looking forward to expanding my learning as well as sharing best practices. I am sure it will be an unforgettable experience as China has much history and beauty to offer its visitors."

“The trip will offer a wonderful experience for us to learn about culture and teaching from a different perspective,” said Alice Desormeaux, Kindergarten Teacher at St. Anne. “I look forward to collaborating with the teachers between both countries and discussing various ways we can all improve our practices.”
