Good Evening Parents, Principal Liu, the 271 Education Group Team and the FEIA Team.
It is always a pleasure to have a chance to speak with you and to share our story as we progress in
setting strong foundations at Fort Erie International Academy.
This is an important meeting for all of us. We are eager to assist you in making decisions on our
partnership in education for your children. I want to say that our first year was successful up until COVID19 hit the world. We started this new Academy with the challenge of opening our new school within 3 months, almost an impossible task and yet we did it!
In the process we learned a lot through the many suggestions and feedback given to us from our parents, students’ and staff. As the summer holidays come to an end, we are all very excited to have students back in the classrooms and hallways, filling them with energy and enthusiasm for learning in Fort Erie, Ontario.
And we are very grateful to Hansen School for providing FEIA with 3 classrooms to provide the online
virtual learning program for your children to continue learning our excellent Ontario Curriculum, thus
providing a student-centered learning and teaching environment for students to grow into successful
individuals and earn their OSSD diploma.
It is our mission to assist every student to feel welcomed, connected, and part of our FEIA family whether
here in Fort Erie or in Weifang City, Shandong Province, China!
I further strive to challenge each student to grow in his or her academic, social, and physical abilities to
ultimately, be post-secondary school ready by the end of grade 12 as they journey into their choice
University to further develop their career destination.
At FEIA, we have highly qualified teachers who have spent hours upon hours planning and creating
activities to engage students in their learning both in-class and online.
Our teachers utilize research based best practices and analyze academic data to determine current skill
levels and to set goals for growth and improvement. We believe that all students should graduate from
high school prepared for the demands of post-secondary education, meaningful careers, and effective
Throughout the year, we will be posting all relevant information on our school’s website to keep our
families informed. This will include updates such as the progress on our newly built student dorms, our
renovated high school, special events and celebrations, student awards, special student excursions, the
university application process, the COVID 19 updates, results of our Ministry of Education Inspection,
showcasing our students success, and much more.
Please go to our website and subscribe to receive email updates so that you have the latest information. www.feia.ca. For your children who will attend our online virtual learning program at Hansen School, we will be providing 3 Credit Courses from Fort Erie, Ontario, with Ontario Certified Teachers who will teach your children online through ‘Ding Talk’. We have arranged for Tutors to provide support for your children in each of the courses offered, they will review the lesson taught by the Canadian Teacher, and assist students in their understanding of the tasks and assignments necessary to be successful in the course.
The Canadian Team consists of:
- Teacher Frances, who will teach ESLDO and ESLEO and she has already taught some of your children during the summer in the online ESL Credit Courses.
- Teacher Heather, who will teach the English ENG2D Credit Course.
- Teacher Karina, who will teach the Advance Functions in Mathematics MHF4U Credit Course.
- Tutor Emily who is at Hansen and has worked with some of your children during the summer courses.
- Tutor Alvin who is in Fort Erie, Ontario who has worked with some of your students during the summer courses.
Credit Courses will begin on Tuesday, September 8th, 2020. Credit Courses will finish on Tuesday, September 29th, 2020
Student class lists will be shared with the students/parents on Friday, September 4th, 2020 as we are still getting registrations from interested students who want to study with the Ontario curriculum through virtual learning through FEIA at Hansen School.
The last thing I want to do is assure you that your children will be safe when they arrive at FEIA, I am sending you all the protocols that we have implemented in our school and the student dorms to keep students and staff safe and healthy. Here is a quick review of the protocols. I will post them on the wechat group for you to review when we are finished with our meeting.
In closing, I am honoured to serve as the Head Principal of Fort Erie International Academy. It truly is a privilege to be part of a community where parents, teachers and students care for each other and strive to build positive relationships that support academic and social growth.
I want to wish everyone a wonderful start to the school year, and please reach out to me if you have any questions or suggestions, our partnership is most important for your child’s success.
