The Vancouver Canucks hockey team are on their way to wining the Stanley Cup. CCEL students join in the celebrations as our team wins the series over the the Dallas Stars.
The Canucks are now 5-4 in seven-game series. The Stars are just the third club Vancouver has eliminated since 1994. The Canucks visit the Anaheim Ducks tomorrow to begin the Western conference semifinal.
Three lucky CCEL students (Alejandro, Federico and Vivian) met Canucks Head Coach (Alain Vigneault) while shopping at Safeway.
On March 21st, Wednesday, we went to an indoor Carnival at BC Place. It was an exciting and multi-colored world. We took the item called “1001” which rushed to the top of a circle and halted there for a while; a revolving machine which spinned more crazy than we had thought; a totally up-side-down machine…We also went in a mirror house; played Peng-peng Cars together…At the end, we played small games and won a huge blue frog. So much surprise that day!
Last week CCEL organized a Culture week: every day, from Tuesday to Friday, different groups of countries prepared traditional food, costumes and pictures to share with all the other students in the school.
Tuesday was Japan, Taiwan and Thailand’s day: we had the chance to learn a lot more about all these cultures. The students from those countries cooked Chirashi-sushi and Okonomiyaki, some girls wore kimonos and our Japanese advisor Shumpei played traditional Japanese music with the saxophone.

“Last weekend, we took a couple of students on a scenic trip of the Rockies featuring the snow-caked sceneries of Mt. Revelstoke, Glacier, Yoho and Banff National Parks as well as Lake Louise and Banff with its vibrant night-life. On Sunday there was a choice available of either discovering Banff, the Banff Springs Hotel and the Hot Springs, taking skiing or snowboarding lessons on Mt. Norquay or experiencing a dog-sledding trip through the mountain forests around Banff. The weekend finished with a Karaoke party in our last overnight stay in Golden.” Christian Kunze, Germany
“Sunday morning in Vancouver we celebrated the beginning of the Chinese new year, the Lunar New Year; with a great parade where you can see dragons, dance teams and different cultural groups, community organizations and marching bands. CCEL students went together to this event and, after the parade, we had a Chinese dinner and went for a short walk in Stanley Park.” Alessia Marioncini, Italy
