OCDSB schools host Chilean “Penguins without Borders”

   

 Chilean students are welcomed at Ottawa Airport by host families


Throughout 2013 the Government of Canada has demonstrated a growing commitment to strengthening both economic and educational partnerships with Latin America. One development that has evolved from these growing ties is the launch of new program named “Penguins Without Borders” whereby the Chilean government selected 40 Chilean students to attend Canadian high schools this school year for one semester. Four of these students are currently attending OCDSB high schools. For these Chilean students, this initiative will enhance intercultural understanding and promote English language development.
