Community and after-school programs at our schools: safe, engaging and inclusive

Many of our schools offer an exciting array of programs that engage the wide array of kids, youth and families in our neighbourhoods. They work to support and promote the well-being through offerings that range from after-school programs to summer learning opportunities.

Through rich connections with our community partners, the programs we’re able to offer New Westminster families span from getting kids active and moving after school to involving students in learning more about our culturally diverse community.

Here are some examples of the programs and options that may be offered at your local school:

  • Classes that get your body moving: Canada Scores, JumpSport, Sports of all Sorts, Redfox Society’s Active Play
  • Classes that move your mind: Coding, SuperCooks, Yoga, Art Waves, Story and Craft, Awesome Escape Rooms for Kids, Art Attack
  • Offerings that support your mental well-being (through the Wellness Centre at NWSS): Mindful Mondays, Understanding Mental Health Through Art, Health Relationships Unlocked, Approaching Anxiety.
