One of the main reasons as to why we decided to immigrate to Canada was the wide education options available for children in Canada. School staff was very cooperative in welcoming and integrating our children. Teachers and supporting staff are equipped with necessary skills to make the transition easier for the newcomer child. Almost all the schools across the country have the same amount of resources. While most children walk to schools, schools buses come to your doorstep if you are not within walking distance.
Very practical approach to teaching is practiced in Canada. In fact, it is not about ‘teaching subjects’, but facilitating the child to ‘learn’. Instead of competitive exams like GCE O/L or A/L in Canada, an ongoing evaluation system will decide the final mark by the end of grade 12. This allows the students as well as the parents to take remedial measures as they can identify problem areas before it is too late.
We are thankful to Mr. Bandula Abeysinghe for the competent handling of our application. Zenith Immigration is a well-organized firm that looks after the client in a highly professional manner with A-Z instructions and guidance.
