You can celebrate inclusion in the Comox Valley at the third annual International Welcome Event at Lewis Park this Sunday.
You’re invited to a family-friendly event that celebrates the hundreds of international students from around the world who choose to learn at North Island College and School District 71.
Students come to advance their education and in doing so share their culture and learn about our Canadian culture. We will also welcome immigrants from many countries who have decided to make the Comox Valley their home.
This free event is open to the public from 2 to 4 pm. There will be games, cake, fun, and community spirit. All you need is your sense of fun, willingness to participate, and maybe a lawn chair or blanket to make yourself comfortable.
North Island College expects 135 to 150 international students to attend class this year and School District 71 expects more than 200 students.
Students come to our Valley from more than 20 different countries, bringing global perspectives to our classrooms and our community. Help us welcome them to the Valley and start their academic year off with a smile.
North Island College, School District 71, and the Immigrant Welcome Centre are proud to sponsor this event in partnership with the City of Courtenay, Town of Comox, Village of Cumberland and the Comox Valley Regional District.
