English as an Additional Language
We offer English as an Additional Language (EAL) instruction by trained, experienced instructors - right at our school. Our English Language Learners are a mix of new Canadians (immigrant and refugee), students from our International Student Program and Canadian-born students who do not speak English in their homes.
EAL instruction is available at all language levels, with a focus on listening, speaking, reading and writing. Students have access to computer-based programs as additional support for English Language Learning.
Students and families may use the services of our Settlement Support Workers in Schools (SSWIS), who can help with settlement issues and finding newcomer services. This program is offered in partnership with the Saskatoon Open Door Society and Citizenship Immigration Canada. Ask about SSWIS workers at your school.
How to register
To register at a school, contact our Registration Centre for Newcomers, at 306-659-7000. The centre is located at our main office in downtown Saskatoon at 420 22nd Street East.
At the registration centre, all students from one family are registered in one visit. Each child completes a language assessment to ensure their new school will be ready to provide the services they need. Families are provided with information on school locations and programming so they can determine which school(s) to register at. Student information and documentation is checked to ensure registration is completed smoothly.
