Orientation Workshops for Newcomers (OWN) and Peer Leader Training

OWN is a program where newcomer students 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.  

Peer Leader Training will be held at Archbishop M. O’Neill Catholic High School from 9am-4pm on August 17th to 18th, 2017.

The OWN events will be held from August 24th to 31st, 2017, which will take place at 11 high schools in Regina in the mornings and afternoons.  Please see schedule below!
