During a recent Wednesday program held in partnership with the Immigrant Services Calgary (ISC), FESA Program Facilitator Beibei Lu was facilitating a special cultural event organized by the ISC staff member May. It’s a Chinese group and everyone was greeted in Chinese.
After the program, Beibei received this message and some accompanying images (translated from Chinese by Beibei):
Hello Beibei and May,
Please see the attachments for the thank you cards to Beibei that [were] created by my two daughters. My elder daughter, Chelsea cannot stay entire session time because she needs to attend her online school for Grade 1 students. My younger daughter, Charlotte really likes this virtual rhyme class. Thanks to Beibei and May for organizing this wonderful program!
Charlotte is about 3 years old, and Chelsea is 6 years old. Charlotte and Chelsea’s mom Alice wrote the email for the girls.
Everyone at FESA is touched by the girls’ drawings and wanted to share them with everyone. Thank you, Alice, Charlotte and Chelsea for allowing your drawings to be shared.
To ensure that learners like Charlotte and Chelsea are able to participate in literacy-based programs safely, please consider donating to our "Cover Your FESA" fundraiser as part of the 25th Anniversary of the Further Education Society of Alberta. Between February 1 and August 15, 2021, all donations received will be matched up to 50% by Shaw Birdies for Kids Presented by Altalink.
