Woodroffe HS encourages international experiences for students

Woodroffe HS has a long tradition of offering international study tours to its students. In the Spring 2018 issue of Global Connections an article featured Special Education teacher Jamie Hughson taking students with cognitive challenges on annual study tours to North American cities. Now Woodroffe is involved in two other innovative international initiatives.

Costa Rica

Teacher Holly Newsome has led study excursions for Woodroffe students to Costa Rica for many years, but during March Break 2020 she will be leading a trip that is open to high school students from across the whole district. Currently 14 students in Grades 10-12 from four OCDSB schools are participating. This district-wide approach was pioneered during the summer of 2018 on a trip to Iceland, and gives students from all schools increased opportunities for international experiences. For more information on the Costa Rica trip, contact Holly Newsome.

Netherlands Exchange

Started in November 2017 and now in its second round, Woodroffe HS hosted 25 students in October from Canisius College in Almelo. The Dutch students billeted with local families and participated in several cultural activities focused on music, including events which honoured Canada’s special historical relationship with the people of the Netherlands. Teachers Terry Duncan and Courtney Callaghan had lead roles in organizing the exchange and believe these exchanges have a powerful impact on the students.
