Newcomers Going to High School? Free Orientation Sessions by SSWIS (Settlement Support Workers in Schools). Parents Welcome!
Orientation Workshops for Newcomers (OWN) is a program for newcomer high-school students. They will benefit by gaining a better understanding of their school and adapt to school life in Canada.
This will help them to be more self-reliant and confident. They will also gain an improved sense of identity and belonging and will become involved in the school culture/events.
New students will be more successful academically and socially.
SSWIS has recruited around 100 senior high school students to become Peer Leaders who will mentor and assist newcomer youth during 2017-2018 school year with high school integration and familiarization with Canadian Culture.
The OWN events will be held from August 24th to 31st, 2017. They will take place at 11 high schools in Regina with both morning and afternoon sessions being offered on different days at different schools.
(If possible, attend at your own school. If you can't, and want to go to another session, contact SSWIS at 306-352-3500 or email:
