The Halifax Chinese Language School Society

Annual Report (2008)

Board of Directors

January 17, 2009


      This is the 16th anniversary of the Halifax Chinese Language School (HCLS). The HCLS was established in January 1993 by a group of enthusiastic volunteers to promote the Chinese language learning and Chinese culture in Halifax, Nova Scotia.During the past 16 years, the school has experienced its growth and success, thanks to all teachers, volunteers, students and their parents. Currently the HCLS has five Chinese language classes, two mathematics classes and one art/drawing class, and is an important part of the vibrant life of the Chinese Community in Nova Scotia.

I: Report on the Previous Annual Meeting

      The HCLS called for an annual general meeting on February 3, 2008 to elect six members of the 2008 Board of Director of the HCLS. Elected members of the 2008 board of Directors are Jason Gu (Chairman and Vice Principal), Bu, Zhiyu (Vice Chairman), Sheng, Jinyu (Principal), Zhai, Li (Vice Principal and Treasurer), Wang, Mei (Recreation and Representative of School Teachers ), Liu, Duyun (Chairman, Parents’ Committee and Advisory Committee).

      The election of the Board of Directors is required by Canadian law as the school is officially registered as a non-profit organization.

II: Review of the Activities of 2008

      In 2008, the HCLS has focused on its core function of providing a unique opportunity and environment for our children to learn Chinese language and also improve their math skills. Additionally, it had organized the Annual Summer Barbeque and the 2007/8 Chinese New Year party. HCLS has also worked with the Chinese Society of Novas Scotia for fund raising for earthquake relief of SichuanProvince in the summer of 2008.

III: Our Thanks to All Volunteers, Teachers, Students and their Parents  

    On behalf of the Board of Directors, we would like to thank volunteers and teachers for their contributions to the school. Many volunteers helped in our academic programs and social events. Without them, our events and achievements would not be possible. The Chairman of the Board also wishes to thank the 2008 Board of Directors personally for their support and sacrifices. We would also like to thank all the students and their parents for choosing the HCLS during the past year. Without them, the HCLS would not exist.

     Best wishes to all for happiness and prosperity in the year of the Ox!
