Tutorial Time: Students in the Senior School can seek extra help every school day from 2:30-3:00 during tutorial time. Teachers will be waiting happily in their classrooms, ready to answer any questions you may have. Students in the Junior School can seek extra help in ESL class, during arranged tutorial time and at advisor meetings.
International Food Days: International food is often prepared for lunch in the School cafeteria. On Wednesdays the School nutritionist will choose a country and prepare a variety of dishes for the School to enjoy.
Celebrating Cultural Events: Students can ask about arranging additional excursions to celebrate national holidays or special occasions. Quite often we go to Halifax by bus and enjoy a delicious feast of authentic cuisine! Students laugh, eat, talk, and sing for hours. It’s fun to be living and studying in Canada, but celebrating other cultures is important, too.
Cooking in the Classroom: Whether it be French, German or ESL class, we love to cook with our students once in a while as a treat to celebrate holidays or special occasions.
A Day in the Life at KES: Students have numerous occasions to meet and interact with people from Canada and all over the world both in and out of the classroom. There are so many wonderful opportunities to learn about new cultures and to speak in English during sports and clubs, in residence, while on a homestay, in art class, in theatre, in band, or while out on a School trip. In addition, we eat breakfast, lunch and dinner together in our spacious cafeteria.
