The International Student Program (ISP) at SD No. 83 North Okanagan-Shuswap has had a great start to the school year with everyone involved in the program keeping very busy. Currently, there are 37 students in the district, and many of them have joined school teams, clubs or are involved with a musical or theatrical production. As well, the ISP has been very active and has already had three field trips since the start of the school year – a welcome BBQ in Armstrong; white water rafting on the upper Adam’s River; and visiting the Salute to the Sockeye Salmon Run on the lower Adam’s River just last week. With more field trips and activities planned in the near future, everyone will hopefully get to enjoy as much of our region as they can during their time in Canada. The amazing weather that we had for a long time recently seems to be coming to an end and the hilltops and mountains are turning white, therefore, I hope everyone is ready for an excellent season of skiing and all the other winter activities our area offers! Please make sure to have a look at our District Video to get a fantastic look at the ISP at SD No. 83 North Okanagan-Shuswap, and remember, we still have spaces available for our 2nd semester beginning February 2023.
