Newcomers to Canada

At Donwood Park Junior Public School we have one full time ELL teacher and one half time ELL teacher who support students who are English Language Learners. The teachers support students in language and/or math depending on what their educational needs are. The teachers also work with our regular classroom teachers to assist them in meeting the ELL students' needs in the regular classroom setting.

Below are some websites that may be helpful to families who are newcomers to Canada. Welcome!
