Lisa SWIS News

Ryerson Community School is located on Denison Avenue in the heart of Toronto’s Chinatown, and on the south side of Kensington Market, in the former City of Toronto. In partnership with Culturelink Settlment Workers in Schools Program (SWIS) since the program start in 2000, we have a long collaborative history and stable partnership in providing a good quantity and quality settlement service for newcomer students and their families. The Newcomer Orientation & Homework Club provided a lot of opportunities for social integration, friendship, homework help and conversation to improve language skills.

Monday Family Fun events were a great success ! About 100 people participated and in those 4 sessions they learned how to do Tai Chi and Zumba. Parents and children had fun being active together!
