Filial Piety: Being Good to one's Elders

From July 6, 2020 to July 24, 2020, CFCCE held a three-week Chinese online summer camp of “The Book of Songs” and “Three Character Classic”. Classmates, parents, and teachers from Toronto, Ottawa, Halifax and other places all actively participated in the activity, and it was very rewarding for one and a half hours a day. The children learned ten popular and beautiful poems from the “Book of Songs”, the source of Chinese poetry. They also learned the catchy, all-encompassing and popular children’s traditional enlightenment textbook “Three Character Classic”, as well as parts related to the “Three Character Classic” and HSK level three Chinese characters.

This Chinese summer camp is divided into two classes, “Ya Song Class” and “Guofeng Class”. Teachers adopt different education methods and teach students in accordance with their aptitude, which is decided based on many conditions like age and experience with scripture. Teachers from the Foundation prepare lessons collectively, carefully select articles and chanting materials, produce exquisite teaching materials and course work, carefully select vivid and meaningful stories and videos, plus daily reading, chanting, literacy, and co-reading, Making the summer camp courses rich and meaningful.

At the online closing ceremony held on July 24, students and teachers sang “Mu Gua” and “Lu Ming”, students recited and performed “The Book of Songs” and “Three Character Classic”. The teachers gave each student a certificate of completion, and the three-week summer camp ended successfully!

This summer camp of “The Book of Songs-Three-character Classic” has gathered the collective wisdom and hard work of the teachers. The success of the summer camp is even more inseparable from the parents’ support, encouragement, supervision and company for their children to learn classics. Thank you parents for supporting the foundation! We hope that our courses can plant the seeds of Chinese culture for children, and we hope that children can become messengers of Chinese and Western cultural exchanges in the future!

After nearly half a year of intensive preparations, Jiqian academy’s 2019 “filial piety” themed Summer Camp  officially kicked off on July 2. This summer camp is based on “The Book of Filial Piety” as the main theme of reading and explaining. The “Book of Filial Piety” is a rare work that systematically displays the Confucian thought system and is also the core foundation of Confucianism. It describes “filial piety” and the methods and steps to promote it that emperors, princes, princes, officials, scholars, and common people should observe. It is hoped that by guiding the children to learn the spirit of filial piety, they can understand their parents’ good intentions, enhance parent-child relationship, and learn to be considerate about others.
