—   Welcome Message  —

Who should make an appointment to re​​gister at the Student Welcome Centre?

► Kindergarten to Grade 12 students born in Canada who DO NOT speak English as their primary language at home.

► Kindergarten to Grade 12 students born outside Canada, regardless of language spoken at home and citizenship.

► Former students, who meet any of the criteria listed above, who were withdrawn from ASDE and have returned. We need to verify their status, again, to ensure the student is eligible for a provincially funded education in New Brunswick.

Certain required documents are needed to determine eligibility and ensure the school has the information needed to maximize the health and security of the student(s). Policy 114 identifies those students who are entitled to receive free school privileges in the public school system in the province of New Brunswick, and identifies those students who are required to pay a tuition fee.

Students must be physically in the province to pre-register online and begin the registration process.

If your primary language is not English and you speak another language than English at home, assessors at the Student Welcome Centre will assess your child’s level of English. This information will be sent to the new school. The results will not be used to place your child in a grade level. The results will be used to decide whether additional support will be given to your child if needed. EAL support is provided at elementary, middle and high school.

​English as an Additional Language (EAL)

Students in elementary and middle school who are learning English as an Additional Language will receive support through EAL programming as needed. Literacy support is established following intake assessments.

High school students requiring English language support are placed in an EAL class. Newcomer Canadian students, Visiting International Students and Rotary International Students are able to receive this support as dictated by the results of their intake language assessments.

When determining programming for students; language ability, placement at grade level age appropriately and prior schooling are all considered. Students of all cultures, languages, abilities and religions are welcome and respected in all Anglophone East District Schools.
