The Early Mandarin program is located at Norquay Elementary School. It is a language instruction program where children learn the language and study in the language for part of the day. The day is structured to allow 50% of time to be in Mandarin: Mandarin Language Arts, Music, Physical Education, and Career and Personal Planning. The program is intended for children who have fluency in English.
