June 13, 2014
The Canadian Summer Experience program at King’s begins today as 31 students from Brazil arrive on campus. The students, along with two chaperones, will live in campus residence, take English language classes and participate in art, photography and theatre classes. As well, they will participate in a Model UN and they will travel to local sites including Pinery Provincial Park, Fanshawe Pioneer Village, Niagara Falls and Toronto over the next three weeks. As well, King’s will host a Brazilian World Cup soccer match screening party.
The students attend Collegio Santo Antonio and Collegio Sagrado Coraco de Jues in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. King’s Registrar Marilyn Mason has visited the region on international development visits. She is now pleased to be able to return the welcome to the visiting Brazilians.
“We are so excited to have these young people come to London for their first International language and culture program. For them to be able to experience life on a Canadian university campus, while learning English, is a very valued aspect of their education. We are honoured that they chose King’s,” says Mason.
The students will kick off the program at a Welcome Lunch at noon, Friday June 13th, Wemple Cafeteria.
