Discover New Westminster Schools
Are you new to New Westminster Schools?
Interested in what our schools are offering students and families?
Want to find out about one of our Programs of Choice?
January 10th – 14th, 2022 will be Discover New Westminster Schools Week!
Over the course of the week parents, caregivers and students will have the opportunity to log into a series of online sessions that will allow our community to learn about different programs offered through district and schools. Each of the sessions will include time for our staff to provide high-level understanding of the programs, information on how to apply or take advantage of the options available, and then opportunities for those “attending” to have their questions answered (through the chat feature in Teams).
Here’s what Discover New Westminster Schools Week will include:
