OCENET international students share special opportunities

 

 Even though they may have got wet, it is obvious from the beaming smiles that the Ottawa international students enjoyed their visit to Niagara Falls


"It was a great experience for us to get to know our students in person and make connections with them on this trip. Also, it was so inspiring to see them making friends with each other, creating unforgettable memories, and learning more about Canada."
- Eunyoung Shin, OCENET International Admissions and Enrolment Administrator, and chaperone on the 2014 excursion to Toronto and Niagara Falls


The Ottawa International Student Program prides itself on providing opportunities for its students in Ottawa to get to know each other outside of the school setting and share in memorable experiences during their time in Canada. Throughout the school year there are several trips which students can participate in, including skiing trips and a visit to Montreal.

One of the most popular trips is the cultural tour to Niagara Falls and Toronto. During the weekend of May 30 to June 1, forty-two international students and five chaperones boarded a luxury bus coach and enjoyed three jam-packed days by visiting iconic locations in southern Ontario. The trip included a stop enroute to the historic city Kingston, and upon arrival in Toronto, a ride up to the top of the CN Tower followed by a banquet dinner and jousting tournament show at Medieval Times. The tour also included a trip to Canada’s Wonderland followed by a long anticipated visit to the remarkable Horseshoe Falls, and a chance to explore the many attractions around Niagara Falls.

An exhausted group of students (and chaperones!) returned to Ottawa having made new friends and sharing memories of visiting iconic sites in the Toronto area.
