      did you know that the Canadian
      educational system is ranked as
      one of the top five educational
      systems in the world? This
      september sees the opening
      of British Columbia Canadian
      school (bccsdubai.ca) in dubai
      investment Park. Part of the
      British Columbia (B.C.) global
      education Programme, students
      will follow the same courses,
      with the same learning outcomes
      and assessments as all British
      Columbia (B.C.) students, whether
      they are based in Canada or in one
      of the certified offshore schools
      across the globe.
       “our ethos is to provide
      an inclusive education that
      recognises that all students have
      innate capabilities that need to be
      cultivated and nourished,” says
      shawn merke, principal of BCCs.
      “This goal is what makes our
      students so successful.”
