International Education

On July 7, 2015, 24 students from grade 6, 7, and 8 and 2 staff members from LKDSB schools experienced a 13 day educational and cultural adventure in Busan, South Korea. Students were billeted with a Korean family that allowed them an authentic insight into home life in this foreign country. Students attended school with their host family “buddies” and also found time to visit many of the historical tourist attractions that Korea has to offer. For most of our students this was their first trip without a parent and they were referring to it as “the trip of a lifetime”. 

Plans are now underway for the July, 2016 excursion. If you would like additional information please contact our International Education Administrator, Kirsten Ramsay at kirsten.ramsay@lkdsb.net or International Student Coordinator, Calvin McCabe, at calvin.mccabe@lkdsb.net. We are planning a Family Information Night in December where you will be able to meet staff who have accompanied our students to Korea, a detailed overview will be provided and the opportunity for you to ask questions. We look forward to meeting you.
