Reaching for Success - Newcomer Children in the Tri-Cities
Are your children struggling in a new learning environment? Our after-school program provides newcomer children the tools to reach their academic goals.
Building on over 5 years of success in other schools in Metro Vancouver, "Reaching for Success-Newcomer Children in the Tri-Cities" provides children with a better school and community experience and helps them make positive connections with their peers, teachers and neighbourhoods.
