It has been a very long time since a post has been put on this webpage, however, I am proud to say that the ISP program is still moving forward and we are currently having a successful second year. Covid-19 affected our program substantially last year, and we had a total of only 12 international students who came to our district. This year, even with Covid-19 still a worldwide problem, we have managed to bring 34 students to SD No. 83 so far this school year, and have 10 more coming for the second semester. Currently we have 19 international students at Salmon Arm Secondary – Sullivan Campus, 8 students at Pleasant Valley Secondary in Armstrong, 3 students at Eagle River Secondary in Sicamous, and 4 students at Salmon Arm Secondary – Jackson campus.
