我们是Aberdeen 高中10年级学生Jessica的父母,

上个月的一天,我们收到一个令人振奋的消息,Jessica作为第一小提琴手被奥卡诺根青年交响乐团录取了,我们为Jessica的表现感到惊讶和自豪。Jessica从小对小提琴感兴趣,并陆续练习了近十年,Aberdeen给了杰西卡在才艺方面展示的机会。我们非常感谢Aberdeen对Jessica的支持和帮助,让她在成长过程通过自己的努力不断收获成功和快乐,期待Jessica能给我们更多的惊喜,祝愿Aberdeen涌现出更多优秀出色的学生!

‘Aberdeen Hall provides an excellent studying environment.  First of all, we have really small classes which are usually less than 20 students.  The teachers focus on both creative and percipient thinking. Besides normal assignments, they ask us to make related projects such as doing research, making and presenting power points, brainstorming and creating large posters. Aberdeen Hall is located in a fabulous place.  It is surrounded by mountains and lakes and is by UBCO.  If you have time, you can even go to the UBCO campus for lunch with professors and college students.’

“This is my 1st year at Aberdeen Hall and already I’ve felt how tolerant

everyone is to students from different countries. Coming here is the best

choice I’ve ever made.”

– Daniel, (China) Grade 10

“My Canadian family is amazing. They are so kind and treat me like part of their

family. I love having a new little brother; we have fun playing sports in the

neighbourhood park.”

– Yoshi, (Japan), International Alumni Aberdeen Hall 

Aberdeen Hall und die Schüler haben mich von Anfang an perfekt aufgenommen und integriert. Die Lehrer haben individuell mit mir gearbeitet und waren immer sehr offen für Fragen. Es gab zahlreiche Sportangebote in und nach dem Unterricht. Auch außerhalb der Schule hat mir das Leben sehr viel Freude bereitet. Meine Gastfamilie hat sehr gut zu mir gepasst und mich stets gut versorgt. Die Gegend um Kelowna ist einzigartig mit ihrer unglaublich schönen Natur. Besonders fasziniert hat mich die Tatsache dass man im Umkreis von 45 Minuten Autofahrt im Sommer bei 30 Grad am Strand liegen und im Winter bei kalten Temperaturen auf der Skipiste stehen kann.

Aberdeen Hall unterrichtet Schüler aus der ganzen Welt, was einem die Chance bietet mehr Kulturen als nur die Kanadische erfahren zu können. Ich persönlich habe zwei sehr gute Freunde, welche aus Ägypten stammen, kennengelernt und besuche diese im Oktober und werde gleichzeitig all meine alten Freunde von der Schule ebenfalls wieder treffen. 

Das Auslandsjahr in Kanada war das schönste in meinem bisherigen Leben und Aberdeen Hall spielte eine sehr große Rolle dabei!

“Identity is not exactly who you are, but instead who you have become. Aberdeen Hall has been the part of my journey towards self-understanding.”

– Taeyi (Korea) Aberdeen Hall Alumni

 娘は留学一年目はバーノンの公立学校に通っておりましたが、自分の目で見て、自分の学校を決めたいという思いが強く、エージェンシーの方とも相談していくつか学校の見学をさせていただきました。そこで一目見てアバディーンホールが気に入り、残りの二年間はこの学校で学びたい気持ちが強く、願いがかない今に至ります。

 母親の私も、昨年の夏にカナダに行き、娘がこれからお世話になるアバディーンホールを見学させていただき、ここなら安心して通わせることができると実感いたしました。

 入学して1年がもうすぐすぎますが、先生方のご指導もとても熱心に感じました。勉強はとても大変の様ですが、体を動かすことが好きな娘は、バスケやサッカー部など、積極的に参加し、お友達の輪を広めていくよう自分なり努力しております。

 日本語を話す機会が学校ではまずないので、以前に比べたら会話も上達したと言っております。それもこの学校に編入できたおかげです。正直、気持ちが落ち込んだり悩む時も多々ありますが、今はスカイプがありますので娘の様子をすぐに知ることができ、離れていても心配はしておりません。

学校の先生方や、ホストファミリー、エージェンシーの方々に助けていただきながら充実hした生活ができていることに感謝しております。

アバディーンホールに入学できて本当によかったと思っております。これからも残りの留学生活を日本から応援していきたいと思っております。

‘He came to Aberdeen Hall a boy, He is leaving a man’.

- Antonio Pizutto, father of Tony (Mexico), Grade 12

My favourite experiences at Aberdeen Hall…..are a lot! To begin with, electives are amazing.  So many subjects to choose from such as as robotics and music composition.  I was on the school team for soccer and rugby.  The community is unbelievable at Aberdeen Hall.  Everyone is friendly and easy to talk with.  I have been supported by my teachers by different ways.  Teachers are always asking to come for help whether its after school or at lunch.  Whenever you seek help, you’ll never be let down’.

My daughter, Cherry Chan, studied at Aberdeen Hall Preparatory School for Grade 11 and 12 from 2017-2019. Aberdeen Hall has a beautiful campus, a supportive learning environment, and caring and dedicated teachers. The class sizes are small so that teachers can provide individualized attention to students with different needs. I witnessed Cherry become more confident and independent throughout her time at Aberdeen Hall and with her teachers' encouragement, she became bolder in class and more willing to take on challenges she would have previously shied away from. Cherry is now doing her undergraduate degree in Vancouver and pursuing her dreams of becoming an artist and designer. Our experience at Aberdeen Hall was sweet and unforgettable.
