School break until Jan 3rd, 2013

Hope you and your loved ones are enjoying a much deserved break over the holidays. This is just a quick reminder to all that the school is closed for its annual break, classes will resume on Thursday Jan 3rd.

Saturday Jan 21st AM and Noon classes moved

Dear students and parents,

Please be advised the first two classes on Saturday, Jan 21st will be combined into a single class in the afternoon (3:00 – 4:30 pm) in order to accommodate a lion dance performance / field trip at a seniors’ retirement home.

Some of the students will be coming with us, it will be a big help and definitely will be appreciated by the seniors that live there! It’s a fun way for us to celebrate the Chinese New Year with them.

If you can’t make the 3pm class, don’t worry – come and talk to us about making up the class sometime over the next few weeks, or we can adjust your fees the following month. Thanks for your understanding!

Interested in helping out at one of the upcoming lion dance performances? We can always use help with transportation, music, etc. Let us know!

Our January newsletter is out!

Dear students and parents, we have just sent out our newsletter for the month. If you did not receive this or have not yet given us your email address, please let Sifu Carmen know and we’ll send that over to you.

Winter break at the school – Dec 24-31

Hello students,

Though we really love seeing you guys πŸ™‚ Sifu Hali and I would like to take a break at the end of December, between the 24th and 31st. This way, we all have a little break to recharge our batteries, and spend some quality time with family. We hope you will be doing the same!

This means that our schedule will be as follows, for those of you that come to class once a week:

  • Tues – Dec 6, 13, 20 (3 classes only)
  • Thurs – Dec 8, 15, 22 (3 classes only)
  • Sat – Dec 3, 10, 17 (3 classes only)

Kids, please let your parents know as the fees will be for only the three classes in December.

Of course you are welcome to do more classes by dropping in on one of the other days for an extra practice — just let Sifu Hali or Sifu Carmen know.

Yes, it’s that time of year again!

For those of you that are new to the school, each year the Hung Hsing Choy Lee Fut Federation of Canada puts on a banquet in August to commemorate the ancestors and origins of the Choylaifut kungfu style, and to celebrate the anniversary of the founding of the Federation.

As members of this Federation, our school is involved each year in the preparations, and our students perform kungfu forms and lion dance along with students from all of the other member schools.

It’s a time for everyone in our school to come together and have dinner together, as well as sit back and enjoy the kungfu performances.

Tickets are $35 per person for the regular 10 course meal, and $30 per person for the vegetarian version. Please get your tickets from Sifu Hali no later than August 2nd!

Student fee changes effective August 1st

Dear students, after 9 years of operation we have decided to adjust our fees, effective August 1st. Sifu Carmen will be distributing handouts to all students between now and the end of July – please call or email if you have any questions.
