Thanks for the sharing of opinions and  info.

Reading some comments makes me excited as having well rounded children who are well mannered and confident in sharing with peers and elders is refreshing. My personal experience in SA leans towards either academics or sports at schools and not always assisting/supporting students to find something they love and enjoy which will make their future careers not feel like "work". Just my 2 cents and not what happens at all schools. 

This is something to think about if I ever have any little ones.

A couple of things to consider:   Canada always score EXCELLENT internationally on academics, so obviously their academic level is good.

 

I think kids are way more "outspoken" and able to advocate for themselves in Canada.  Some are rude, but so are some kids in South Africa.   Honestly, overall, I think that there is WAY more emphasis on respect going BOTH ways in Canada than in enforced "respect by fear" like in South Africa.
