Comparing Canada and India School System

No Comments

I’m in Grade 2 in H.F.L Public school in Brampton, but I go to school in India for couple of months when we go and visit my grandparents, uncle and his family. This article is about what I learned and love the most and the differences between both the schools in India and Canada.

I love Canada school because we have a lot of fun activities and games. We have library in Canada school and can go on Prodigy math games and if we don’t know how to get on prodigy we can go to any other games we like to go. For example we can go to Math track or Bit strips, but only thing we can’t do is Mind craft, because it has lot of bad things. We could pick up books and read them at home and return the next day. Guess what I got a smiley eraser because I finished reading 20 + books.

I love India school also because we have activities on Every Saturday and all Saturdays are school days. But we don’t have a library in the school.

In Canada school we have Gym. The thing I liked the most is Bounce ball.  We go to the park sometimes and if it is inside Gym we do Hula hoop, Basket Ball, Bounce ball, Jump rope, Soccer, Tennis, Toss the bean bag and outside we play four squares. I always use to loose at this game, but once I came third and another time came second, but never came first. We play Basketball and throw ball in the net even though it is high. I do Hula hoop on my neck and hip and arm without making it fall down.  In Kindergartner we played wash the babies; match the card, built a house .And we play in the park games like swing, climbing on the trays and back sliders, monkey bars in both the schools. India school doesn’t have Gym, but only have fun in the school park after the school hours.

I love both of my Canadian and Indian teachers and friends. They are so kind. The teachers taught me good studies and I got A++ in my India School. All the tests, class work and home work given to me in my Canada School I did excellent. All my friends allow me to play with them.

In Canada School we have slip tests in the school  and at the last day of the school they put all the papers in a folder and gave it to me and  all the tests I did were 100 % right and got a smiley from my teacher and my mom and dad were so happy and gave me a big candy and an ice cream cone.

In India school we have test every day in the morning, and we have unit test and quarterly exams and in all the subjects I got A++. Everyone at home were happy. My uncle took me, my mom and Aunty to an ice cream parlor and also I got big   kinder joy candy.

Canada and India teachers are amazing. Canadian teachers help us to solve the problems if anyone is bulling us. Indian teachers talk to me a lot and help us solve our problems when people are being rude to us. In Canada School we eat Lunch and Snack in the music room. In India School my mom brings Lunch and we sit under the tree and play in the park and eat.  In Canada School I have homework once in a week and in India School daily we have homework and morning we need to do slate work.

In Canada School I have music class and it is so much fun and there we do songs and sometimes we watch movies and could play on I pads and can draw. In India School I have no music class. As I wanted a music class I have to do it out side of the school and now I learn from a master from India in Skype.

Because of studying in both the schools it is benefitting me a lot and learns lot of subjects. From my Canada School I learn English, Math, Science and Puzzle solving etc. From India School I learn English, Math, Science, General Knowledge, Telugu and Hindi.

When I’m in Canada in the summer vacation I do all my subjects that I have in India School for an hour or two. And when I go to India in the evening I do my work book which my dad got me from  Walmart in Canada . It is a big book that has Math, English and Science. And I love learn things from all these books.

Memorable thing in my India school is doing a group dance program in an auditorium. It is called Mahati Auditorium a famous one in Tirupati, India.

Memorable thing in my Canada School is getting a Husky award for an article of mine being published in about my experience in flower city parade

Canada Day Celebration in Chinguacousy Park

No Comments

Our family went to Chinguacousy park for Canada day Celebration. We went in a car After a while we reached Chinguacousy park.  My dad and mom told me and my grandmother to get down and they went and parked the car and came.  We saw a dog carrying a balloon with a maple leaf! It was cool to see  on our way to the park.

My dad brought a chair and my Grandmother sat on it.  Then we looked for the rides, games and tickets for the rides.  First we went on an elephant ride and dad took picture.  Elephant ride Jumping Jumbos went up and down and round and round. I had fun and waved my hands to my Dad.

Then we went for tattoos.  The line was so big, my mom had to almost stand in line for one and half hours to make sure I get the tattoo. I had a pretty beautiful rainbow color angel tattoo and she even had  wings. It looked like a real angle. My mom had a pretty butterfly as a tattoo and dad took pictures.

Next we went to Disney Dragon. I sat with my friends as it started to spin and went round and round and forward and backward. Some time I even started to get dizzy.  Some time the dragon stopped spinning and we can watch other dragons spin and my dad took pictures of us.

After this, we went to fun house and rang the bell and scattered next and walked through the sticks and were spinning in a spinning round. We lied down in a wheel and moved our bodies and crawled through the spinning wheel and got out as my dad was taking pictures.  After enjoying in the Marie go round, my dad and I went on the Cobra coaster and were screaming like crazy.

By this time, my mom got me a cotton candy. The pink cotton candy was so huge and delicious to eat. My dad and mom then showed four games. They were bag picking, balloon buster, duck catching  and dolphin catching. I won the dolphin catching game and got two beautiful toys.

Before we watched fire crackers, I played with sand and mud and built a big mountain.  As the fire crackers  started, they came behind me. One of the cracker kissed my cheek while falling down.  The fire crackers were colorful and some came like a rain and some fire crackers came like a hot air balloon without the basket.  At this time we were running backwards as the crackers were almost falling on our head.

As firework finished, we went out of the park and told my mom and grandmother to wait on a bench outside the park.  My dad and I walked and talked  till we reached  the car parking and  then got in to the car  and came back and picked my mom and grandmother and started going back home.

I told my grandmother thanks because, even though she was sick she came to see me enjoying the whole day and having fun till the mid night. I slept in the car and my dad carried and put me on the bed.

The celebration was so big and there were thousands and thousands of people and many stalls for all to eat, and games to play and have fun.  It was lots of fun and memorable.

Our  family went to the parade. First we stood in a line. After a while it was our turn and I correctly put the bean bags in the net  that had different shapes. I won a Tattoo !  We saw a big Dinosaur cave and we went inside it and next we saw a super man and my Dad took a picture with him.

Next we saw a magic show inside the Gage park. In the magic show the first trick we saw a hat inside of the that,  and then came a beautiful cloth. The next trick we saw was the joker, put the cloth down and then a shoe appeared .We all told that he removed his shoe.  He showed his foot, as we all told to show his other foot.  Then he showed us and the shoe was there too.  It was a magic trick.

              The next trick we saw was a bag, he asked “Alex” the lion to pick someone to check the bag.  He picked a girl. What we saw inside the bag was a beautiful and colorful cloth.  But the joker said there was nothing inside and the girl said yes and gave to the lion “Alex”.  Then he told the girl to check again. So she checked again and the joker said there was nothing.  But she took his under wear from the bag.  All of us laughed.  The joker tried to put it in to the bag but he couldn’t .  So he asked the girl to put the underwear in the bag and she did.  Joker asked to give hi-fi to him and the lion “Alex” and she did and we all the children were excited.

            The next trick we saw was the joker asking the lion “Alex” to pick someone who is brave and he did.  Joker said he has to test him and asked the boy if he is scared of Lion, Crocodile, Tiger and Ice cream.  We all laughed. Who in the world will be scared of Ice cream.  Boy answered “No” to all. Then he tied a scarf on him and he pulled it. He pulled two times the scarf didn’t come and third time it did.           

                 The next trick we saw was the joker asking the lion “Alex” to pick someone .So he did. The joker gave the girl a magic Wong. He had a coloring book in his hand. He told the Girl to shake the Wong. After the Wong was shook  and he told us to blow and after we blew then the  coloring book was  all colored. Next he told the Girl to shake the Wong again. So she did.  And he told us to blow, so we did it  and the pictures in the coloring book  were all erased. Next the joker told the girl to shake the Wong again and she did it and the joker told us to blow and so we did it and all the pictures in the coloring book appeared .Next we all did some Dancing moves with “Alex” and the joker.

                Next  we went to drawing place. There  kids were drawing. One Adult  saw me and gave me a big paper and then she wrapped it with a band around it. And also she gave me a string. From there we went to next booth and it was also a drawing place. I got a paper and made a spinning wheel with lot of glitters and drawings.

                   Next we went to huge slide and did the slide. First I was little bit afraid and after that it was exciting for me and then I stood in the line and  did the slide again. Then I did Rock wall climbing, but could climb only half the wall, but it was fun having all the Rock climbing equipment.  Next I played with Bean bags, Lemon and Spoon and then did have fun with another big slide and had a Freeze.

            After all the fun we had in the gage park ,we rushed to find a good place to sit and enjoy the parade. There we saw a table, two Suns, two hot air balloons, two flower pots walking. Then we saw a Mickey Mouse , Blue monster and he gave me a hi-fi. Then I saw lot of kids dancing and doing Marshall arts and we saw people doing Punjabi dance.  Next came  all the princess in a car .Then we saw people from ISCKON temple  dancing and chanting ‘Hare Rama Hare Krishna’. Then we saw a police car and Fire truck and an ambulance doing Parade, and the police gave me a Garland .I liked that. I saw soldiers marching and Finally a BIG COOKIE MONSTER came and it was too good to see that. After all the fun we came home with a beautiful pin from Brampton flower city.
