Translated Home and School Toolkit

I was in Province House this morning for the announcement by Hon. Allen Roach, Minister of Innovation and Advanced Learning that our PEI Home and School Federation’s Home and School Toolkit has been translated into French, Farsi, Nepali, and Chinese. The translated toolkits, which are a guide to parents to help them engage in the education system, are available for download and will be distributed to schools in printed form.

The translation was enabled by the Province of PEI’s Immigration Services branch, with financial support from Citizenship and Immigration Canada: it’s great to see both levels of government realizing that one way of making new Islanders feel at home here is to work to ensure that parents can be full participants, regardless of language, in their child’s education.
