News & Announcements

International Students coming to Westside!

We are excited to announce that Westside will be welcoming a group of students from Japan for 10 days from March 21 to March 30.

Each of our guests will be assigned to a class “buddy”, and we hope that most or all of these buddies will also be able to host the student in their home. This is a great opportunity for our students to meet young people from another country and experience their culture and language! It is also a great opportunity for the visiting students to learn all about our Canadian way of life.

Even if your child will not be a “buddy” for this particular group, we encourage all interested families to apply to host a student. Host families will be compensated to offset expenses.

If you are interested in hosting a student, please contact Red Leaf Local Coordinator, Lynda Houseman, at 519-217-4853, or lhouseman@red-leaf.com.

On January 30, 2018, trustees approved a Public Engagement Plan as a part of the Board’s process to develop a Long Term Accommodation Plan (LTAP).
The LTAP is a strategic review of the Board’s facilities, population projections, and enrolment forecasts. At the end of the process, the LTAP will identify accommodation priorities for the Board. Public engagement is an important part of the LTAP process. We want to have conversations with our school communities to promote a shared understanding of local school issues.
