The Al Jbawi family are doing well in settling into their new life in Calgary. The parents are already in the LINC program (Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada), learning English everyday. The children are all registered and excited to start school in this month, with some excellent extra language support in place. NeST Volunteers go to the home twice a week to help them further with their English.
All last week the boys played soccer with ‘Soccer Without Boundaries’ which took place just across the road from where they live. This week it’s school intakes and transport orientation to and from schools.
Those of us involved with NeST are grateful for all contributions of time, furniture etc., and financial, towards this super family.
