International Winter Study Camp
On January 24, 2011 thirty eight students and five teachers from Beijing University Primary School, China arrived in California to attend Chino Valley Christian Schools International Winter Study Camp. This program consisted of the students staying with our host families and attending school with CVCS students. The program is designed to teach the students English and to expose them to American life and culture. During the week, the students arrived at school by 8:30 a.m. and attended English development classes for part of the day and then integrated into our classrooms for the second half of the day. After school from 3-5:00 p.m., the students were able to experience activities related to American life which included Disney Day, Hollywood Day, Country Day, Western Day, and American Past Times. On the weekends the CVCS teachers took the students on tours to expand their American knowledge. The students visited Disneyland, Hollywood, the L.A. Central Library, the Crystal Cathedral, and local city attractions.
On Thursday, February 3, 2011, Mayor Yates and Mr. James Na (Chino Unified School Board President) visited CVCS to meet our international students and to learn more about this amazing program. Not only did the international students have a great time, but so did our students!
Two weeks came and went quickly, but we enjoyed every minute of it. This has been a great experience for our CVCS students, international students, host families, and CVCS staff. Our school has learned so much from this experience! We look forward to more of these international opportunities so that we can continue to spread God’s Love and Global Vision.
