As part of International Education Week, Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools is celebrating the 43 students from across the globe currently enrolled in their international student services program.

International students enroll in a middle or high school to benefit from the education and cultural experiences while studying in Red Deer. Some students also strive to graduate with an Alberta high school diploma and then attend university, which will allow them to be employable in their home country.

“International students help Canadian students get a deeper understanding of other cultures from firsthand experiences and interactions,” said Program Director, Paul Stewart at Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools.

International Education Week is being celebrated from November 13 to 17.

Alberta Education has participated in International Education Week since 2006. It is recognized by many governments and non-government organizations in Canada and is an initiative under the Council of Minister of Education, Canada.
