Free 2018 International Student Handbook
Parents will consult with the study agent before the child goes abroad, and you must have heard the words: “The high school curriculum in Canada is much simpler and the difficulty is not comparable to the domestic one.” Often heard this sentence, many Parents’ erratic heart falls, go out, don’t let children suffer crimes in the country, do so many homework every day, keep testing, ranking, eating badly, not sleeping enough, body ruined, confidence is gone, as if Studying abroad is the best choice, and there is nothing wrong with Bailey. But what about Canadian students in real life? Are students really relaxed and happy every day? Under the glamorous appearance we see, is there any effort behind it? Today, we will lead you to understand the life of a Canadian high school student.
Wake up time: 7:30-8:00am
In general, the school starts at 9:00am. Students are either walking or taking a school bus. The bus takes about half an hour, so Canadian students basically get up after 7:30.
Breakfast time: 8:00-8:30am
The breakfast for Canadian families is mainly based on bread, egg and milk, with orange juice for protein and vitamins for children.
By school bus time: 8:30am-8:45am
The school bus will set a timetable and pick up the students at each stop. If the school bus arrives early, it will stay until the designated departure time. However, if the student does not arrive at the school bus departure time, the school bus will not wait for the students.
Period one: 8:45-10:00am
After arriving at the school, the students will go directly to the classroom of the first class to wait for class. The classroom for the first class of each student is called their Home Class. The teachers in this class will record the student's attendance, whether there is leave, late arrival, etc. Teachers will also send some notices to the students in various departments of the school. For example, the student has an appointment with the class guide, and the instructor will write a notice with the date, time and content of the appointment and the teacher will be notified to the student by the HomeClass teacher to ensure that the student attends on time.
Period two: 10:05-11:20am
You may be surprised that the first class and the second class have only a 5-minute break in the middle, and each class lasts for 1 hour and 15 minutes. What should students do if they want to go to the bathroom? This parent does not need to worry, the student can raise his hand to indicate the bathroom during class. Of course, if you go for half an hour at a time, the teacher will be very puzzled to ask if the student is uncomfortable and needs to see a doctor. The five minutes between classes is just for the students to walk from the classroom of the first class to the classroom of the second class.
Lunch Period: 11:30-12:30pm
What is the lunch for Canadian high school students? In most cases, students do not go home at noon and eat at school. The meal time is about 50 minutes. Most eat pizza, sandwiches (or biscuits, etc.), drink, and cool. A few parents give the children a meal or let them bring a lunch box, but also a little hot. Xiaobian lamented that Chinese children (of course, the children of middle and primary schools in the city) are really happy, not only the lunch is very rich, but also hot. Some of the children of wealthy families are even more incredible. Every noon, it is a common thing to go to a restaurant near the school to eat and drink. In fact, it is not a Canadian student who is poor and cannot afford to eat. It is about this habit, whether it is a wealthy family or an ordinary family.
Period Four: 12:45-2:00pm
Readers may ask, how do you get the fourth class just after two classes in the morning? In Canada, lunch time is counted as Period Three, so after the students have finished eating and completing a Period, then naturally go to Period Four. When you are in high school in Canada, you usually only need to bring a pencil bag, a Binder and your book. The book is provided by the school, you don't have to pay for it, and this book is yours for a semester. However, if you lose it or destroy it, then you are ready to donate more than 100 Canadian dollars to your school.
Period Five: 2:05-3:20pm
After two classes in the afternoon, I left school. It was very early after school, and the students were liberated at 3:15. After school, some students will discuss together because of the group work of some classes. The library is the best place. There are not only books, but also many computers can access the Internet, but not on the game website. Some students will review and do homework in the library after school, because sometimes there are tutors in different subjects who answer questions in the library.
In order to develop students' hobbies and interests, the school has also created a variety of clubs, exquisite, tennis football, chorus bands, anime paintings... no choice, only unexpected.
This day's school life is over. Some students may go home after 3:30, and some students may have a lot of extracurricular life. It is not surprising that they arrive home at 6 o'clock.
Although education in Canada is easy, it is not completely idle. In particular, the higher the grade, the more the workload began to increase. However, the teachers here are also very responsible. The junior high school graduates will remind the students to go to high school. The difficulty of learning and the amount of work will rise like the world demographic chart in the early 20th century. Many people can't adapt and are forced to drop out of school. Let the students be mentally prepared. But for students from China, this is really a shame. Although there will be a significant improvement in the difficulty of learning, with the Chinese IQ, at least an average of 80 or more is no problem. If the homework is completed on time every day, and the exam is reviewed before the exam, the average score of Chinese students is above 90.
In China, many children are used to pre-test assaults, and they can concentrate on one night before the exam, and they can get a good final grade. However, here, this road will not work. For each class's final evaluation results, each teacher has different examination contents. The final scores also have different scoring standards, but all have one thing in common. The usual results are very important.
Mathematical physics and chemistry almost every day, once a week Quiz, 2 weeks Test, for the final evaluation score, the usual test scores accounted for 60%, homework and experiments accounted for 20%, final exams only accounted for 20%, so learn these Classes, basically no breathing time, cannot relax every day.
Some students do not pay attention to the usual homework and Quiz. At the end of the period, they will be arrested. Although the results of the final test can be barely A, the overall score may be B. Some children may directly the fail is gone, and crying is useless at that time.
After reading this article, do readers have a general understanding of the life of Canadian high school students? Xiao Bian believes that Canada's education system is very suitable for students with higher self-control because the school's daily teaching time is shorter, giving students more freedom to spend time. Students can allocate time to develop their own interests without delaying homework and reviewing weekly quizzes. However, many Chinese children have been diminishing their interest in a certain field because of the "Chinese-style learning method" that has been subjected to many years, and they are forced to take exams for exams and to hate learning in the middle of teachers, parents, and rankings. After leaving the country, students are very dangerous. They have lost the control of their parents. They have been indulged in the world of computers and games for a long time, and the phenomenon of hanging subjects is also everywhere.
It’s good to study abroad, only when you come. Freedom, happiness, pain, anxiety, struggle... all kinds of feelings, not in it, are hard to understand. The children who come out to study have their own reasons. Some of them are children who do not adapt to the domestic teaching system. Some are not willing to let their children be imprisoned by the domestic system. Others simply do not want their children to suffer in the country and want to get rid of the domestic college entrance examination system. . But any one thing has two sides. The same is true for studying abroad. It is not all good, not all pain...
