School District 60 is looking for Host Families for International Students. The following letter is from our International Education Principal, Brian Campbell.

Dear Families,

Are you interested in being a Host Family for SD60 next year?

We are currently looking for some new Host Families for our program, to start hosting in September 2021.  We have students coming from 16 different countries from around the world.

We are looking for host families to provide care for 3 month, 5 month or 10 month stays. There is an honorarium provided for Host Families to help with the additional costs of having another person in your home.

Basic expectation of a Host Family:

-Provide a clean, safe, nurturing, supportive home environment.

-Provide a private furnished bedroom with a window large enough to escape through.

-Provide 3 meals/day plus snacks.

-Provide help with transportation (for extra- curricular activities) as well as to school, if there is no bus available.

-Provide opportunities to explore and experience Canada!

-Include students as part of your family, as you would expect your own child to be treated if they were with a different family.

-Submit a Criminal Record Check for the School District.

For more information about our program, or how to how to apply please visit our International Program web page at www.studyinthepeace.com

If you would like more information or have any questions, please feel free to contact Jodi Hickey our Homestay Coordinator at jhickey@prn.bc.ca

Sincerely,

Brian Campbell

District Principal

In recognition of the discovery of the remains of 215 children on the grounds of the Kamloops Residential School our schools will take time together on June 3, 2021 to learn more. 

Dr Niigaan Sinclair stated, [there is] “no reconciliation without truth and we should all stand up together.” 

Flags will be half-masted until further notice.

On June 3

  • Students and staff are encouraged to wear orange
  • A moment of silence will be observed
  • A video created by students at the Sk’elep School of Excellence will be shared with staff and students – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u0YYkvIWbng

Schools and classrooms in age appropriate contexts will have additional ways they explore and learn about the tragic history of Residential Schools in Canada. Our work along the lines of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission calls to action and learning about Canada’s treatment of Indigenous peoples is ongoing. This discovery brings again to the forefront the importance of this learning and work.
