Join us for SMILE Program Open House

Thank you for considering the Seamless Mandarin International Language Elementary (SMILE) program for your child. SMILE is the only program of its kind in Ontario where English and Mandarin instruction are integrated to deliver the elementary Ontario curriculum. This unique program is for any child, regardless of skill level, from grades one to eight, from all language backgrounds.

With the rise of Mandarin as a global language for commerce and communication, ensuring that our children are proficient in Mandarin, might be considered as fundamentally important as English, Mathematics and Science to succeeding in the world of tomorrow.

Chinese New Year Celebration for the Year of the Dog

The Year of the Dog came on Feb 16. Toronto Mandarin School held various events to celebrate the lunar new year with families and friends.

At the weekend school, more than 600 people attended the event on Saturday, Feb 10. The theme of the event is named the “Carnival of the Year of the Dog”. The crowd was wowed by the students’ performance and the traditional lion dance. This year we also invited students and staff from different sites to perform on the stage. 14 market stands were festively decorated, where students learned how to make dumplings, practice Chinese calligraphy and brush painting, make traditional arts & crafts, or bought New Year items, home-made food, fresh fruits and candies. There was also a playing station for preschool children to play fun interactive games. Many staff, students and parents dressed up in traditional clothing and made such a festive scene.


Children at four preschool sites(JINGBAO Bilingual Children’s Center) all dressed up in beautiful festive colors, performed songs and dances for the parents and guests.

Students from our Adult Training Center threw a big Spring Festival party on Friday, February 3. We learned how to make dumplings from the scratch. Everyone received a red envelope for good fortune in the new year.

New Partnership with Rosedale Day School for After-school Program


Toronto Mandarin School has successfully collaborated with Rosedale Day School in Toronto and started a new after-school program of learning Mandarin in November 2017.

Both parents and students were very excited about learning Mandarin! The parents believe that Mandarin is a must-know language and communication skill. 30 students from Kindergarten to Grade 6 registered in the new program.

Ms. Suellen Zhou from our school took the lead as the head teacher for this program. A graduate of Beijing Language and Culture University and later OISE of the University of Toronto with professional training in Teaching Chinese as Foreign Language, Suellen is an enthusiastic teacher with years of experience in teaching Mandarin in China and overseas. Her class is always packed with fun and creative activities and her students are fully engaged and enjoyed the new experience of learning Mandarin.
