Pave the road to the future

Think Ahead, and Pave the road to our future.

“The future is a pattern dependent on the movements of the present” Quote from the book Poppy War by R.F. Kuang.

12 students graduated today after completing 15 Advanced Python classes and 5 Fundamental classes starting from May. We didn’t rent fancy classrooms, but we have achieved more than the most prestigious institution or University can offer. 我们没有租借高档的教室,但是我们提供了名校一样的教育。

Celebrate Canada Day in Oliver and Osoyoos BC

As our annual tradition, 15 families with kids celebrate Canada’s 151 birthday by travelling all way down to Oliver BC, camping in Hillside Orchards U-Pick farm, experiencing local cultures, watching Osoyoos Cherry Fiesta Parade roll down the main street, and viewing the magic and incredible natural phenomenon of Spotted Lake.

It is great to call this great country “our home”.

“Cherries are the first harvest of the year.”

Celebrate the Beginning of Summer 2018

Gather at Bowness Park and greet summer with our annual event with authentic Hunan food and perfect picnic dishes. It is great to meet with friends and families, and to see kids growing up happily.

浪得西加好泽天。
二三子弟,旧趣弄新弦。
前朝数据今朝挖,
我的智能责任田。

派耸编程岂豹关。
良心课件,苦习与侪看。
夫能育就些些个,
一网英才值万钱。
