Stanstead Journal - - FROM PAGE ONE -

On Mon­day, Au­gust 31, 2015, the first day of classes for the Youth sec­tor, school per­son­nel will be greet­ing over 5300 stu­dents as well as an ad­di­tional 1100 in the adult sec­tor (adult ed­u­ca­tion and vo­ca­tional train­ing) for the 2015-2016 school year. The Eastern Town­ships School Board is pleased to an­nounce that it has an in­crease in its stu­dent pop­u­la­tion at both the ele­men­tary and sec­ondary lev­els.

“I would like to thank the par­ents and stu­dents for choos­ing the ETSB and as­sure them that our teams of ded­i­cated per­son­nel are fo­cused on stu­dent suc­cess. We take this re­spon­si­bil­ity very se­ri­ously as we have over 6400 stu­dents count­ing on us” ex­pressed Mr. An­dré Tur­cotte, Di­rec­tor Gen­eral of the Eastern Town­ships School Board.

Adult Ed­u­ca­tion & Vo­ca­tional Train­ing…reach­ing your goals!

In ad­di­tion, our four Adult Ed­u­ca­tion and Vo­ca­tional Train­ing Cen­tres will help over 1100 stu­dents through­out the year to achieve their goals. Be it fin­ish­ing high school, get­ting a cer­tifi­cate, or chang­ing ca­reers and tak­ing on a new chal­lenge, the per­son­nel in our cen­tres are pro­fes­sion­als trained and ded­i­cated to guid­ing our adult stu­dents so that they can reach their po­ten­tial.

In­ter­na­tional Stu­dents…ex­pe­ri­enc­ing the jour­ney of a life­time!

Our suc­cess­ful In­ter­na­tional Stu­dent Pro­gram will be wel­com­ing 64 stu­dents from across the globe into our schools and com­mu­ni­ties this year. Many will be­come part of a new fam­ily in our home­s­tay pro­gram, pro­vid­ing a unique and up close cul­tural ex­change.

The Eastern Town­ships School Board pro­vides ed­u­ca­tional ser­vices for stu­dents in the Estrie and Mon­térégie ar­eas with 20 ele­men­tary schools, three high schools, two adult ed­u­ca­tion cen­tres, two vo­ca­tional train­ing cen­tres, a dis­tance ed­u­ca­tion and an in­ter­na­tional stu­dent pro­gram. We of­fer stu­dents the ad­van­tage of study­ing in a bilin­gual en­vi­ron­ment, led by car­ing adults and sup­ported with a com­pre­hen­sive tech­nol­ogy ini­tia­tive that is stu­dent fo­cused.
