QSoE Newsletter Winter Review 2014

Winter Review 2014

At an All School Assembly on Friday, May 9, we welcomed our Summer English for Academic Purposes (EAP) class. The buds are opening on the trees, and spring is in the air in Kingston. We told new students how beautiful the city would be in this gentle season. We also told them to look with respect at returning students, who spent the Winter term at QSoE. That was a long, cold, stormy winter, and all of our returning students have earned some Canadian bragging rights for slogging through it. Congratulations, Class of Winter 2014!
