Orientation Workshops For Newcomers (OWN) And Peer Leader Training

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 Campbell Collegiate from 9am-4pm on August 16th to 17th, 2018.

The OWN events will be held the thrid and fourth week of August and it will take place at 11 High Schools and Adult Campus in Regina in the morning and afternoons.  The session in the morning will be from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm and the afternoon session will be from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm.
