In October, 2016, Mr. Brian Liu, Director of International Affairs of TFEDEA, together with Mr. Awara Omar, Manager of Continuing and International Education at TDSB, attended meetings with officials of Shanghai City, Jinan, Zibo and Qingdao City of Shandong Province and paid visits to potential partner schools in China.
They held extensive and far-ranging discussions regarding the field of fundamental education. Both have shown interest in the friendly exchanges of administrators of educational department, principals, teaching staff and students with the founding and establishment of “sister schools”. It is hoped that with the solid foundation built on trust and consensus, the relevant parties from two countries can give full play to their advantages in fundamental education, organize more exchange programs and jointly push forward for deeper cooperation and development.
