EAL- English as an Additional Language
Ms. Jacqueline Crothers (Head of the EAL Department) and her staff warmly welcome all students, old and new, to the 2013-14 academic year at BIFS. This year, the Elementary EAL program is being run by three teachers, Mrs. Mandy Thomson, Ms. Rhiannon Lewis, and Mrs. Deanna Wilson. It has been a very busy start to the year in the EAL department. Children from all the grade levels have been assessed so that scheduled EAL program time can be allocated appropriately to all of those who require it. It has been an absolute pleasure getting to know the children and we look forward to a productive year as they strive toward English fluency. Time will also be scheduled to give support in the homerooms.
