Additional Information

Well if you enjoy teaching, talking and doing recreational activities all day with kids or youth, then you might want to apply as a teacher to work at Wynchemna. I like to point out that the hours are long, but the job is a lot of fun and very rewarding if you enjoy teaching English or French and doing many recreational activities and talking to international students all day long.

If you consider going skating or to the movies, or chatting with students for breakfast, lunch, supper or on the bus for example as work, then this job is not suitable for you. Because the hours are long, you do not have time to go out and spend your money, which means you can save some money over the summer vacation.
