10th Annual ECBEA Awards Celebration

Who would have believed that an upstart language learning experience in a prairie city would become the “best Chinese language program outside of China”? Celebrating its 35th anniversary, Edmonton’s Chinese (Mandarin) Bilingual Program offered in 13 Edmonton public schools boasts over 2000 students learning Chinese language, history and culture. With the dynamic support of the Edmonton Chinese Bilingual Education Association, the program is trending toward record enrollments. Chinese language acquisition is a fun, challenging, stimulating and fulfilling educational experience. Come honour our exemplary students being recognized for academic excellence, leadership, sports, service, culture, music, writing and performance arts at the 10th Annual ECBEA Awards Ceremony on June 3, 2018, Sunday, 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm, City Hall, 1 Sir Winston Churchill Square
