加拿大经典文化教育基金会

Weekend Classes

In order to prevent children born and raised in Canada from becoming “whitewashed” and lose connection to their heritage, a group of parents enthusiastic about charity and education have formed a non-profit mutual aid team in the past few years. They are not only encouraging their own children to read classic Chinese literature, but also working to promote the reading and teaching of Chinese classics in the whole of the GTA. Successively, Jiqian School and Beichen Chinese were established, which has empowered more and more families to unite around the cause of classic education, allowing countless people to begin to get in touch with and understand the classic literature and traditional virtues and wisdom of the Chinese people. After a period of fumbling, practice and reflection, we gradually summarized some relatively practical teaching methods by organizing and optimizing teaching methods of the past. Thus, CFCCE’s syllabus for the Chinese language class and the scripture reading class was formulated for teachers and volunteers to reference. One benefits greatly by studying the classics. Not only do classics offer positive worldviews, outlooks, and values, create well-read and cultured families, and teach respect and etiquette, children also learn to read Chinese characters and gain a better command of their language along the way. At the same time, we did not forget to expose children to renowned English classics, be it poems, plays, or book passages. It shows them some excellent content of Western civilization, and helps them gain the understanding that the ancestors of people all across the world shared some wisdom and viewpoints — “great minds think alike”, one could say. We hope that our children will have the virtue of being a “君子”, which exactly echoes the ways of a gentleman called for by the West.
