Director's Message

director

Shelly Zheng, Director / Founder

Today, most kids see school and learning as a burden – a chore that they have to do before being allowed to play with their iPads. I believe that by sparking children's innate curiosity, by channelling their imaginations towards the infinite horizon of possibility, learning can be regarded – not only as fun, but as fundamental.


Fostering life-long learners was the reason I founded Focus Learning. Teaming up with a group of passionate and professional educators, we instituted a series of “Edu-tainment” programs that facilitate substantive learning in a fun and engaging atmosphere. Our small class sizes allow teachers the chance to give individualized attention to each student – allowing for their progress and success.

In all candidness, sometimes I feel as though I have one of the best jobs in the world. Seeing a child's face light up – full of brightness, full of life, full of wonder and curiosity – is not just a reward to educators, but to our global community.

Focus Learning's First Annual Spelling Bee!expand

In the beginning of the year, many of our students disliked spelling and dreaded spelling tests in school and at Focus. In November they demonstrated a HUGE transformation by proudly standing in front of their friends and family to participate in the SPELLING BEE at Focus Learning! Win or lose, we are SO proud of all that our students accomplished by preparing for, and competing in, the Spelling Bee. Special thanks to our MPP David Zimmer for preparing an inspirational welcome speech and certificates for our students!!

A Focus Learning Experienceexpand

My name is Lucy. I'm in grade 5. I moved to Canada 6 months ago. I started taking classes at Focus Learning one month after I moved here. I take Art, Science, Robotics, and Writing at Focus Learning. The teachers show me lots of things you can do. I like building robots and making websites. I want to learn more English so it can help me in my future. 

...



Lights, Camera, Action!expand

The stage is set, the lines are memorized, and everyone is ready to amaze the audience with their performance of the play Little Red Riding Hood! The Focus Learning Drama Production students have prepared every aspect of this show. They have written the script, planned and created the scenery and costumes, and even directed their fellow actors and actresses.

When they began class a few months ago, they were not aware of the many details that contribute to a successful performance of a play. However, last week at their dress rehearsal, I was blown away by not only amazing performances from all the actors and actesses, but also the profressionalism each student had for all the other aspects of the show. Students were putting last minute touches on scenery, while others were helping their fellow classmates with memorizing lines. It was a transformation I, as the director of the play, was extremely pleased to see. 

Not only was this class a learning experience of theatre, it was a series of important life skills lessons in teamwork and determination! The students began each class with a team building lesson and game in which they learned strategies for working together. They applied those skills later in our class to create a true masterpiece of a play. 

This Saturday, June 13 the students will take the "stage" to show off their hard work, and they will take with them all the memories and lessons learned throuhgout the entire process of Drama Production.

Express Yourself expand

Summer Camp 2013 was truly a time to remember for the staff and campers of Focus Learning. Not only was Toronto under a heat spell, but we were joined by new students from various areas in Toronto and even from across the ocean!

Our camp programs offered students from various ages, backgrounds and countries to express themselves through art, creative writing and engineering.

We had a camper named Jane, who loved drama, writing and drawing, spend her summer with us. She had travelled to Toronto to experience the city and, well take a break from her home town. She spent a month at Focus Learning developing her drawing techniques and fell in love with writing poetry. Jane even debuted on the Focus Learning Theatre's stage performing with her cast mates a rendition of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night.

As the summer winded down and Jane was getting ready to return to school, she said to me that this summer had been her best camp experience and she was so proud and happy of all her accomplishments! And well, so were we! Jane had done some amazing things including inspiring other campers to pursure their artistic ambitions.

The image above is part of a larger comic book concept that Jane worked on while taking our Comic Book Writing Program, as well, I have a left a snippet below from one of her poetic pieces she had submitted to the Focus Learning student archive.

Please Enjoy & We Welcome YOU to Express Yourself at Focus Learning this March Break or Summer!

The Sign Of Springtime Bloom

By: Jane

Golden sunshine creep through the window.

casting a morning light.

Rainbow flowers grow their petals,

the buds say good-bye.

Clear blue streams flow with delight,

fish a blur in sight.

Yes, these are the signs of the springtime bloom.
