Mon Sheong Foundation Chinese School
Our aim is to teach the Chinese language, both written and oral, and foster an understanding and appreciation of Chinese culture within our multicultural society and Mon Sheong spirit.
The Mon Sheong Foundation Chinese School started in 1968 to fulfill one of the aims of the Foundation in promoting Chinese culture, heritage, and philosophy among our younger generations.
The School has a history of forty-three years, and developed effective teaching method to encourage students to interact with each other and to boost self-confidence and expression. Being one of the largest private Chinese schools in Canada, the School has a total enrolment of more than 1,000 students in its North York, Etobicoke, and Markham campuses. Because of rapid population growth and migration of people from South to North, the NEW Richmond Hill Campus will be opened in September, 2011. In addition to Chinese to Chinese (Cantonese), Chinese (Putonghua) and conversational Putonghua, Math classes from Grade 1 to Grade 12 are also offered. Emphasis of the Math program is to reinforce the learning and development of a strong foundation. Both Chinese and Math programs are specially developed and regularly updated to suit the backgrounds and needs of local students.
All teachers are university or college graduates with rich teaching experience and strong dedication. Small class teaching with a low student to teacher ratio is implemented to cater for the needs of individual students.
The School emphasizes a holistic and balanced development of its students. Various activities such as drawing competition, penmanship competition, writing competition, speech arts contest, Chinese New Year celebration, open house etc. are organized during the school year. By participating in these activities, students will have more opportunities to enhance their expression skills and enrich their experiences in Chinese culture.
Collaboration with parents is instrumental in enhancing the effectiveness of school teaching. Over the years, the School has received constant voluntary support from parents in both academic and extra-curricular programs. The Parents Association is now playing an indispensable role in the sustainable development of the School.
During the year-end graduation ceremony, certificates of achievement will be awarded to students who have demonstrated hard work and exceptional results in areas of language proficiency, dictation, penmanship, progress and recitation. In addition, four scholarship awards will also be awarded to students who excel in academic results, including Dr. S. F. Liu Award for Outstanding Achievement, P. S. Quan Award for Academic Achievement, Professor Ming Shau Yau Scholarship, and Mandarin Scholarship.
We currently have four campuses to serve the growing community.
