- Students Excel in Canucks Family Education Centre’s Writing Contest
In celebration of Family Literacy Day 2010, the Canucks Family Education Centre (CFEC), Canucks for Kids Fund, Word On The Street, Scholastic Book Fairs and CFEC’s many sponsors and partners launched Kids Corner by offering a “Family Stories Writing Contest” for children and youth. Kids Corner is a place for kids and about kids - a virtual learning site where kids can participate from school, libraries, at home, or anywhere in between. Many young writers submitted their family stories to the contest and prizes were awarded to the following young writers.
- Partnerships That Work: Communities and Friends Learning Together Program
The ‘Communities and Friends Learning Together’ (CFLT) Program is a remarkable program that is making a big difference in the lives of students attending Morely Elementary in South Burnaby. It is facilitated by Frontier College, a close partner of the Canucks Family Education Centre, and is offered to students between the ages of 8 and 12 who attend Morley Elementary – a school with a high population of immigrant students. Like many of the programs offered by the Canucks Family Education Centre, Frontier College’s CFLT program focuses on improving students’ reading and writing abilities while strengthening the kids' sense of community, as well as building positive relationships at school.
