How parents help their children succeed in school

Hosted by the Education Foundation of CPAC and sponsored by HSBC Bank Canada, CPAC Education Day is the largest education related event in GTA’s Chinese Community. The main purpose of this annual event is to provide newcomer families with information on the Canadian education system and related services, helping students and parents succeed in their new life in Canada. Since its inception 6 years ago, this event has provided over 10,000 student and parents with practical information about education in this country.

The 7th CPAC Education Day will be held on October 25th, 2014 at the Sheraton Parkway Toronto North Hotel (600 Highway 7 East, Richmond Hill ON L4B 1B2). About forty schools and education related service providers are expected to attend this year’s event to let you have a face-to-face communication chance to the school representatives. A keynote presentation shared by a Harvard student plus eight breakout session workshops and a full day drop-in student forum hosted by post-secondary student’s associations are all tailored to the needs of parents and students. Catering to the increasing interest in adult education, this year’s Education Day will also provide related information and workshop to mature students seeking a second career or look to upgrading their skills to reach their goals.

Parents Can Help Their Children Succeed in School

Many Chinese parents did not attend elementary and secondary schools here in Canada. When these parents help their children in learning and adaptation of school life, they face many uncertainties and challenges. This presentation focuses on how to solve the uncertainties and deal with the challenges. It covers 1) comparison of schooling in China and Canada, facilitating the parent’s understanding of school life here, e.g. how to read school report cards; 2) the relationship between teaching and learning, encouraging the parents to communicate with teachers, e.g. how to participate parent-teacher interview; 3) diploma requirements: what are the credits needed for an Ontario Secondary School Diploma? And how will these credits affect the students’ choices when applying to universities?
