My Brand New Life - Ming's First Day of School

Top of page

Eleven-year-old Ming, from Halifax, Nova Scotia, has had home-schooling. This means she has never been to school, taken exams or worn a school uniform. For one week in Montreal, Ming will find out what it's like to be in a regular classroom with girls and boys her age. She will do more math than she has ever done, take a test and give a presentation. As Ming discovers some advantages to being in a real school, her classmates weigh the pros and cons of a structured learning environment.
