Significant increase in Summer Learning enrolment

The number of students enrolled in 2019 summer programs offered by Surrey Schools increased by more than 1,600 from the year prior.

According to a recent district report, the Surrey School District welcomed 12,265 kindergarten to Grade 12 students and 431 adult learners in Summer Learning Programs this past summer. By comparison, there were 11,052 students in summer 2018 programs.

"Much of the increase was due to the creation of several new programs and securing additional sites for in-demand existing programs," said Shauna Ross, Acting Director of Instruction. "We are always striving to provide more options to meet the expanding learning needs and interests of our students and families."

For example, this was the first year summer classes for adults were available. Invergarry Adult Learning Centre offered a variety of full-credit and literacy/numeracy foundation courses.

Other expansions and new programs included:

  • six new sites for our Literacy & Numeracy program;
  • an additional site for our English Language Learner program (now totaling seven);
  • a new culinary exploration program at Enver Creek Secondary;
  • a new film camp for secondary students in partnership with SFU; and
  • a new camp for children with/beyond cancer in partnership with West Coast Kids Cancer Foundation.
